This CCCEP-accredited professional development program consists of online modules and multiple-choice assessment. It covers various disease states and essential skills for geriatric pharmacy practice based on the Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (BCGP) exam content outline. The program is designed to help participants to not only prepare for the BCGP examination, but also to increase their expertise in delivering pharmacy care to the older adult population. The program is taught by clinical experts in geriatric care, many of whom are credentialed themselves.
Please note that the program does not provide participants with the BCGP credential.
