Geriatric Certificate Program

Program Overview

The Geriatric Certificate ProgramTM (GCP), was developed and launched in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada in 2013. We believe at GCP, we bring the best together – our program consists of core educational courses/workshops that are offered through well-known organizations, which are specific to each education stream available through the GCP. The courses/workshops are offered Canada-Wide, as well as through online platforms, which allows GCP to reach the masses across the globe. With a growing international presence, we will continue to provide quality education to further our mission.

MISSION: The GCP aims to improve our aging population’s quality of care through a unique combination of well-developed educational programs.

VISION: The GCP is a leader in combining well-developed curriculums that clearly link knowledge to practice – to improve quality of care for our aging population.

How it works

Registering for the Geriatric Certificate Program (GCP), you will gain access to the GCP portal, which serves as your gateway to the program’s courses specific to your chosen stream. Each stream comprises both required and elective courses. While some courses may be self-paced and others live, all courses can be accessed online at this time. The GCP program not only includes courses by the Regional Geriatric Program Central but also a variety of courses offered by our esteemed partner organizations.

To successfully complete the program, you will need to upload your course certificates to the GCP portal upon finishing each course. Additionally, you will be required to take a quiz to showcase your understanding and application of the learned material. Once you have successfully completed all the required courses and passed their respective quizzes, you will be awarded the GCP certificate.
