With a flurry of activity at the end of December 2016, the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy was officially dissolved with the filing of papers with the state of Delaware. The assets of CCGP were transferred to the Board of Pharmacy Specialties, where the Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacist (BCGP) credential is now included under the portfolio of certifications offered by BPS. With this change, the geriatric credential is now the second largest program offered by BPS, with almost 3,200 geriatric pharmacists. Only the Board Certified Pharmacotherapy Specialist (BCPS) credential has more pharmacists.
All three of the former CCGP staff members have moved to the Board of Pharmacy Specialties. Heather Hart has taken a position with BPS as Recertification Coordinator. The former CCGP staff who remain involved in geriatric certification are:
Courtney Moore, Senior Manager, Geriatric Certification
Thomas R. Clark, RPh, MHS, BCGP
Senior Director, Geriatric Certification
