Admission Requirements

The PharmD for Pharmacists program is designed to equip practicing pharmacists and recent graduates with the skills, knowledge, and experience to engage in an expanded scope of practice.

Pharmacists who meet any one of the three admission requirements listed below may apply for admission:

  1. You are a pharmacist who has graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from an accredited (CCAPP) Canadian Pharmacy program or an accredited (ACPE) American Pharmacy program.
  2. You are a pharmacist who is currently licensed to practice pharmacy in any Canadian jurisdiction (except Quebec).
  3. You are a pharmacist who has graduated with a Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in Pharmacy from any International Pharmacy School AND have successfully completed the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) Evaluating Exam.

The admissions process identifies the best possible candidates for the PharmD for Pharmacists program by assessing each applicant’s overall achievements, including those in academic and non-academic areas.

It is understood that current clinical practice and academic excellence are necessary, but not sufficient, to ensure success. A multitude of factors are used to determine the appropriateness of every candidate. As the applicant pool varies in qualifications, there will be an overlap in the distribution of applicants’ practice settings, clinical skills, GPAs, and other criteria in accepted and declined candidates.

Not all candidates who meet the minimum requirements will be offered an interview in the application process or a position in the program.
