The program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy is now in its seventh decade of educating pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists. The UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences is the only faculty of pharmacy in British Columbia.
In this program, students learn how to help patients use medications and medical devices; provide drug information to patients and other health professionals; and much more. The curriculum incorporates problem-based learning, and many courses emphasize small group work, group projects, presentations, workshops and the use of web technology. The curriculum also includes experiential learning, in the form of clerkships completed at community and hospital sites.
Graduates of the program can apply for licensure as a pharmacist in any province in Canada, and may continue their education by applying for graduate programs. Pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists are in great demand, and jobs are available in community pharmacies, hospital pharmacy departments, government service and pharmaceutical companies.
The program satisfies the requirements of the College of Pharmacists of BC for academic qualification for licensing in the Province of British Columbia.
The Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program of the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of British Columbia has been awarded the status of Full Accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs for the six year term 2013-2019.
