Geriatric Certificate Program
The Geriatric Certificate Program (GCP) was developed and launched by the Regional Geriatric Program Central (RGPc) in 2013. The program is comprised of educational courses aimed at improving quality of care for the aging population, thereby enhancing the quality of life for older adults. The courses are offered through well-known organizations with a record of outstanding evaluations and a well-developed curriculum that clearly links knowledge to practice. The planning and development of the GCP has been reviewed and endorsed by the McMaster Continuing Health Sciences Education Office. The courses are offered Canada-Wide, as well as through online platforms, which allows GCP to reach students across the globe.
