Non-Degree Programs


The potential for knowledge is unlimited and we continue to provide the latest and most relevant knowledge and practices to our community of BC Pharmacists. Pharmacy professionals wishing to expand their scope of practice can choose from several non-degree programs:

Continuing Pharmacy Professional Development provides BC pharmacists with high-quality accredited programs developed to meet both the community and hospital practice pharmacists' educational needs.

The Canadian Pharmacy Practice Program is designed for:

  • Internationally-trained pharmacists who want to achieve the competencies for practice in Canada
  • Canadian-trained pharmacists who want to re-enter pharmacy practice in British Columbia after a prolonged absence or who want updates on core competencies for practicing pharmacists

The Pharmacy Practice Residency Program trains pharmacists for rewarding careers in hospital pharmacy and in many other aspects of pharmacy practice.

The Community Pharmacy Residency Program is a one-year postgraduate program that provides advanced knowledge and skills for the delivery of pharmaceutical services at the heart of a community pharmacy.
