The effective date for the approved Senate changes to our program is 2015, not 2014. There was a typing error in the proposal motion. A new motion will be presented at the next full Senate meeting to make this correction officially. The admission requirements for 2014 are posted on our website and remain in effect, including the PCAT and PHYS 101 requirements.
If you have questions about admission to our program, contact us directly at email@example.com or visit our website: http://www.pharmacy.ubc.ca/programs/degree-programs/BscP.
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.
