ASCP will host its annual Geriatric Pharmacist Boot Camp from March 20-21, 2024. Boot Camp will be offered BOTH in-person and virtually. This year's in-person option will lead off APhA’s Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL.
Based on the Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS) Content Outline, this workshop helps participants either prepare for the 2024 exam or to refresh their knowledge of geriatric principles by working through practice skills and clinical case topics with other pharmacists and subject matter experts.
