The American Pharmacist Association (APhA) applauds the announcement that the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) has reached an agreement with the Board of Pharmacy Specialities (BPS) to move the Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (CGP) credential under the BPS portfolio of pharmacist certifications.

“This decision is very good for the pharmacy profession and most importantly for patients as it creates alignment, synergy, and clarity for the board certification of pharmacists,” said APhA Executive Vice President and CEO Thomas E. Menighan, BSPharm, MBA, ScD (Hon), FAPhA.  “It is also fitting that this occurs as the Board of Pharmacy Specialties is celebrating 40 years of improving patient care by promoting the recognition and value of specialized training, knowledge, and skills in pharmacy and specialtyboard certification of pharmacists.”
