Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy
The Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy (CCGP) is a non-profit organization which has established a voluntary professional certification program for pharmacists. Pharmacists must pass a written examination to become certified and must re-certify every five years. Candidates are expected to be knowledgeable about principles of geriatric pharmacotherapy and the provision of pharmaceutical care to the elderly.
CCGP was founded in 1997 by the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists and R. Tim Webster, and it is based in Alexandria, Virginia. As of 2007, CCGP has certified pharmacists in Australia, Canada, Panama, Puerto Rico, Sweden, Singapore, United States and Japan.
