Geriatric Pharmacy Clinical Session Package for Recertification

Held annually at the Midyear Clinical Meeting, the Clinical Session package provides 5 hours of recertification credit through a high-level, interactive discussion on contemporary and emerging issues in geriatric pharmacy.

These activities are approved by BPS. For pharmacists who maintain more than one certification, some of these sessions provide credit for more than one specialty. See session names and details.

Registration for an Intensive Study or Clinical Sessions package does not include access to the Live Pharmacotherapy Review and Recertification Course.
Separate registration and fee required.

Integrated Session Format

The BCGP Clinical Sessions will be held live throughout the Midyear meeting, and any meeting registrant may attend these thought-provoking and highly educational sessions. However, if you are board certified, you must purchase the package(s) for your specialty in order to receive the recertification assessment and claim the credit. This package includes the live sessions, recorded versions of the live sessions, and the recertification assessment available on December 18, 2019. Any recertification credit earned will be applied in the year in which you pass the assessment.

If you are currently enrolled in the 3-Year Recertification Plan or the Review and Recertification Reward Program, the BCGP Clinical Session Package is included as part of your enrollment.

Please note that the BCGP Clinical Sessions are a repeat of the sessions presented in October 2019 at the ACCP Annual Meeting. Learners may claim credit only once.

How to Participate

During the Midyear meeting registration process, add the desired recertification package (BCACP, BCCCP, BCGP, BCOP, BCPPS, BCPS).

  • Attend the live sessions at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting in Las Vegas.
  • Unable to attend all of the sessions at the Midyear meeting? The recertification package also provides online recorded access to all of the sessions in your selected specialty.
  • After the Midyear meeting, complete and pass the recertification assessments for the desired sessions. Each session provides 1 to 1.5 hours of credit.
  • BCGPs may earn up to 5 hours of recertification credit. The assessments will be available online on December 18, 2019. Any recertification credit earned will be applied in the year in which you pass the assessment.
  • Dual-certified? Passing a recertification assessment for a session with multiple certifications will provide you credits for each of your specialties. For example, by passing the assessment for the "When Life Happens" activity, you earn hours toward BCACP and BCGP. Sessions with multiple certifications are outlined in the Clinical Sessions table.
