Examples of Acceptable Courses

Click here to access a PDF document listing examples of acceptable course codes for admission in September 2020. This information is also available in the PharmD Application Handbook.  

The table accessed through the link above provides examples of the known courses, or combinations of courses, which may be used to meet eight of the specific subject requirements for the PharmD program for the 2020 admission cycle.  The table includes listings for all Ontario universities (including all three University of Toronto campuses) as well some non-Ontario universities. 

Due to the large number of post-secondary institutions we cannot list all institutions. You may meet our academic requirements by attending any recognized university. Updates will be made to these listings as new information becomes available.

In addition to the subjects listed on the table remember that the following courses are also among the subject requirements:

  • One term of English (Literature/Composition) at the university level is also among the subject requirements but is not included in the table as there are a very wide range of courses that are acceptable.  Click here for a table of examples of introductory level English courses.
  • Two terms/semesters of Humanities/Social Sciences at the university level are also among the subject requirements but none are listed in the table as there are a very wide range of subjects that are acceptable. 
  • Physics is also among the subject requirements but is not included in the table as it is required minimally at the Grade 12 level.
