Overview

This program offers a dynamic curriculum based on the National Association of Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities (NAPRA) competencies.

A learner-centred environment will allow you to gain the scope of required skills, which will include receiving, ordering and managing inventory; preparing, dispensing and compounding medications; interacting with patients and health care providers; and assisting in the provision of pharmaceutical care and pharmacy services.

You’ll enjoy the classroom and hands-on practice in onsite state-of-the-art labs that include community dispensing, institution/long-term care and sterile preparations. You’ll also participate in three work experience placements.
