Program of Study

The Faculty of Pharmacy Program of Study is based on the concept that a successful student builds expertise in many specific areas of pharmacy by gaining mastery of foundation material from the pharmaceutical, biomedical, clinical and social sciences. The foundation material provides an intellectual framework on which experiential knowledge is built. Conversely, the experiential curriculum provides specific examples that validate the foundation principles taught. The Faculty embraces diversity in teaching approach, including active learning, traditional teaching strategies, up-to-date laboratories, robust use of technology, and an emphasis on learning as a life-long activity. The Faculty of Pharmacy Program of Study is meant to be constantly evolving to maintain a progressive and reiterative connection to interprofessional patient care and the pharmacy profession, both locally and globally.
