Senior Care Pharmacists

Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

The Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy offers voluntary certification to pharmacists who serve geriatric populations. To become certified, pharmacists must currently be a licensed pharmacist, have a minimum of two years of experience as a licensed pharmacist, and pass a written exam that focuses on geriatric pharmacy practice. Those who pass receive the designation of certified geriatric pharmacist. While this is a voluntary certification, professionals in the field highly recommend obtaining it as a demonstration of your specialized skills and knowledge. The Board of Pharmacy Specialties also provides certification.
