BCGP Regulatory, Geriatrics, Social, and Public Health Study Guide
The Board Certified Geriatric Pharmacy (BCGP) Exam is likely one of the toughest exams you will take in your career. One of the reasons it is so difficult is due to the regulatory, social, geriatric, and public health-related topics. As a pharmacist, we like to focus on the drugs, but you have to recognize the other topics in the content outline.
If you review the content outline, you’ll quickly realize that 40% of the exam is based on these kinds of topics and statistics. This supplemental study guide will help improve your understanding of common terms and topics in geriatrics. It will also help you pass the BCGP exam.
In the supplemental BCGP study guide, we have covered over 40+ geriatric related topics. We’ve closely covered the BCGP content outline to make sure you have an understanding of these critical topics.
