Doctor of Pharmacy
The Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) is a five-year program designed to prepare students who are beginning their pharmacy education for careers primarily in community and hospital settings, as well as pharmaceutical industries, pharmacy organizations, and educational environments.
Direct admission from high school is not available for the entry-to-practice program. Students are required to complete 10 specific prerequisite courses at the university level prior to being eligible for admission. The program is competitive for a limited number of seats. Priority is given to applicants who are residents of Newfoundland and Labrador. One seat is reserved for an Aboriginal student from the province of Newfoundland & Labrador.
The annual application deadline is Feb. 1 for program commencement in the Fall semester.
In addition to the University’s general application fee, Canadian applicants are required to pay a pharmacy application fee of $125 CAD and international applicants $175 CAD.
Upon completion of the Pharm.D. program, pharmacy graduates have many exciting opportunities for beginning their careers, including a variety of practice settings. Some career choices include:
- Community pharmacy
- Hospital pharmacy
- Pharmaceutical industry
- Pharmacy associations
- Pharmacy residency training
