Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy



The Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) is a non-profit organization which has established a national voluntary certification program for pharmacists. The focus of the certification program is "geriatric pharmacy practice." As part of this process, a written examination was developed, which candidates must pass to become certified. A pharmacist who is certified in geriatric pharmacy practice is designated as a "Certified Geriatric Pharmacist" (CGP).

Additional recommended knowledge

To become certified, candidates are expected to be knowledgeable about principles of geriatric pharmacotherapy and the provision of pharmaceutical care to the elderly.

The Vision of CCGP is to ensure that all seniors receive high-quality pharmaceutical care from Certified Geriatric Pharmacists; and that CCGP certified pharmacists are recognized as the preferred providers of pharmaceutical care to seniors.

CCGP was founded in 1997 by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists and is based in Alexandria, Virginia. CCGP has certified pharmacists in, Australia, Canada, Panama, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Singapore, United States, and Japan.
