    Pharm.D. Program – Admissions

    Before considering the admissions and application processes involved for any of the College’s undergraduate programs you should become familiar with what each program offers. A complete description of the academic programs offered by the College of Pharmacy is provided elsewhere. Specifically, you should be familiar with the Pharm.D. program.

    Prior to admission into the Purdue University professional pharmacy program, students must complete the Pre-Pharmacy program requirements. Usually this is done during the two years immediately prior to starting the professional curriculum, although alternative paths have been successfully followed by many students. For students attending Purdue University, this usually is accomplished as a Pre-Pharmacy major during their freshman and sophomore years.

    Admissions to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program

    Pharm.D. Program Admission Criteria

    All Pre-Pharmacy requirements must be completed prior to entry into the program (except PHPR 10000 and PHRM 20000 for off-campus students). Students may complete these requirements at other colleges and universities. International transfer credit is accepted. However, the two semesters each of organic chemistry and anatomy/physiology, and one semester each of biochemistry and immunology, must be completed in the United States, regardless of whether they have been taken previously. Because of the integrated nature of the curriculum, there is no opportunity to be admitted to the professional program with advanced standing beyond the beginning of the first professional year. The Pre-Pharmacy requirements are as follows (see the specific courses in the Purdue Pre-Pharmacy program that meet these requirements):

    • Anatomy and physiology (six semester hours, with lab)
    • Calculus (six semester hours)
    • Economics (three semester hours – micro, macro, or general)
    • English composition (four semester hours)
    • General biology (eight semester hours, with lab)
    • General chemistry (eight semester hours, with lab)
    • Microbiology (four semester hours, with lab)
    • Organic chemistry (eight semester hours, with lab)
    • Pharmacy orientation (West Lafayette Students only)
    • Physics (four semester hours, with lab; can be non-calculus based)
    • Immunology (three semester hours)
    • Biochemistry (three semester hours)
    • Statistics (three semester hours)

    Admissions Decision Factors

    Admissions decisions by the Admissions Committee involve consideration of several factors including:

    • Evidence of academic readiness for, and commitment to, growth in the learning goals of the professional curricula.
    • Evidence of community volunteer service and leadership experience.
    • Evidence of quality verbal and written communication ability as well as interpersonal capabilities.
    • Evidence of knowledge about pharmacy and initiative to learn more about pharmacy and career path options.
    • Cumulative grade point average for all coursework taken after high school (suggested minimum 3.00)
    • Performance in Pre-Pharmacy core science courses (biology, chemistry, immunology, math, physics, and statistics) will be critically reviewed. A grade of C- or higher must be earned in all Pre-Pharmacy core science courses with a maximum allowance of four grades of C and/or two repeats in these courses.
    • Previous work experience
    • Two letters of recommendation (required)
    • Applicant-supplied information and statements on the application form.
    • Personal interview with representatives of the Admissions Committee. Each applicant given final consideration for acceptance will be interviewed at least once by one or two faculty or professional staff members.
    • Extemporaneous writing and verbal communication exercises.
    • Applicant’s initiative to seek out firsthand knowledge about various pharmacy practice environments.
    • Completeness of application forms.

    A personal interview with representatives of the Admissions Committee is required. This will be arranged for the most qualified students after applications have been received.

    Students applying for the Pharm.D. program must currently and continually meet the College of Pharmacy Technical Standards for Admission and Retention, which are available in the Student Handbook. A presentation on the admission process and the factors considered by the admissions committee can be found in this PDF file.

    Application for admission to the Pharm.D. Program

    In order to be eligible for admission to the Pharm.D. program in August 2012, all prepharmacy course work must be completed, including the requirement that no more than one prepharmacy course would need to be completed in summer school, 2012. An exception is Pharmacy Orientation I and II (PHPR 10000 and PHRM 20000), which are not required for admission.

    Application Process

    Students applying for admission into the professional program leading to the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) must complete an application through the Pharmacy College Application Service, known as PharmCAS. Purdue’s PharmCAS deadline is December 1, 2011 for admission for the class starting in Fall 2012. The PharmCAS application is available through the PharmCAS web site (http://www.PharmCAS.org). Students must provide PharmCAS with an updated official transcript that includes your fall semester grades as soon as they are available. PharmCAS will not release your application to us until this is done. In addition, any applicant completing coursework in Fall 2012 but not attending Purdue University (West Lafayette, Calumet, Fort Wayne, or North Central) should submit a copy of their Fall 2012 grade report immediately upon receipt to the Purdue College of Pharmacy. These should be mailed to: Chair, Committee on Admissions, College of Pharmacy, Purdue University, 575 Stadium Mall Drive, Room 104A, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2091.

    All applicants must also complete a Purdue Pharmacy Supplemental application. The supplemental application is due by December 1, 2011 and is available through this web site. A non-refundable application fee of $55.00 must be submitted by any applicant that has never attended Purdue University (West Lafayette, Calumet, Fort Wayne, or North Central). This application fee will not be waived under any circumstances, and must be paid online by credit card.

    Two(2) letters of reference are required in each applicant’s PharmCAS application and recommender contact information must be submitted to PharmCAS by December 1, 2011.

    Applicants must submit all materials by the December 1, 2011 deadline to be guaranteed consideration for admission. In general, late applications are not considered.

    Note: PCAT scores are not required or used in the admissions process.

    Action on Applicants

    1. The Admissions Committee will select the best qualified applicants for the Pharm.D. program based on a composite assessment of the characteristics stated above.
    2. All applications will initially be reviewed for evidence of basic qualifications for admission to the professional program, and those most qualified will be invited for a personal interview.
    3. All interviews will be conducted on the West Lafayette campus in the College of Pharmacy primarily during February 27, 2012 to March 9, 2012. Letters of invitation for an interview will specify the date and time. It will be the student’s responsibility to arrange his/her other commitments in order to be available at the assigned time. Each applicant will also be asked to participate in two brief exercises that will provide evidence of extemporaneous writing and verbal communication ability.
    4. The Admissions Committee will then thoroughly evaluate the application materials pertaining to each applicant in arriving at a rank ordering of applicants based on overall qualifications.
    5. Admissions will be granted during March 23, 2012 to March 30, 2012 to the 150-160 most highly qualified applicants.
    6. The next most highly qualified applicants will have their names placed on a rank ordered waiting list to compete for residual spaces available at the end of the spring semester or quarter.
    7. Some students will not be admitted. They will be referred to appropriate advising offices for assistance in choosing other areas of study.
    8. All admitted students will again be reviewed at the end of the spring semester or quarter. Those students whose academic performance has slipped below the acceptable level established by the Admissions Committee will most likely have their admission offer withdrawn.

    Confirmation of Admission

    1. If you receive an offer of admission to the College, it must be accepted within 14 days after the date of the letter of offer.
    2. All students must make an advance deposit of $250 (non-refundable) by May 1, 2012. Students admitted after May 1, 2012, will have 14 days from the date on the letter of offer to pay the deposit.
    3. Off-campus students who are admitted must submit the following to Purdue:
      1. One copy of your Spring 2012 grade report. Fax (765) 494-7880 or e-mail: stevenbs@purdue.edu this information as soon as it is available.
      2. One copy of your high school transcript AND two official copies of your college transcripts showing all courses completed with grades (including Spring 2012 semester or quarter grades). Mail to: Chair, Committee on Admissions, College of Pharmacy, Purdue University, 575 Stadium Mall Drive, Room 104A, West Lafayette, IN 47907-2091.
    4. There will be an orientation program during the week just prior to the beginning of classes that all admitted off-campus students will be expected to attend. Additional orientation activities will occur during the first week of classes. Admitted students will receive information on this program during the month of July.
    5. Prior to beginning the professional program, it is necessary for students to be inoculated against and have evidence of absence of tuberculosis, measles, rubella, hepatitis B, and varicella (chicken pox). The hepatitis B vaccine series takes 6 months and, therefore, the student may not have it completed until the middle/end of the first professional year. Students may elect to sign a waiver in lieu of receiving the Hep B series. Students are responsible for the arrangement and payment of any medical inoculations.
    6. Students are required to produce a satisfactory criminal background check conducted by Certify Screening at no charge to accepted PharmCAS applicants.

    Program Costs and Financial Aid

    1. A differential tuition/fee will be assessed each fall and spring semester students are enrolled in the program. The final fourth professional year of the program consists of up to 40 weeks of Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) clerkship rotations, beginning in May following the third professional year and students will be enrolled in a summer session in addition to the fall and spring semesters. Regular University fees and tuition will be assessed during this summer session based on the number of credit hours scheduled. There may be an adjustment to the summer fee schedule in future years.
    2. Admission into the Pharm.D. program has financial aid implications in terms of need-based scholarships. Students are advised to contact the Division of Financial Aid to obtain information and assistance.
    3. Beginning in the first professional year and continuing through the third professional year, students will be required to leave campus for the IPPE portion of the curriculum. This includes approximately 300 hours of off-campus experience including experiences during the academic year and the summers. Students are responsible for their own transportation to these sites as well as housing if necessary.
    4. In the fourth professional year of the program, students will be required to leave campus for the APPE portion of the curriculum (clerkship) that will be conducted at approved sites throughout Indiana. This currently consists of 40 weeks of experience divided among 4 weeks each of Community and Hospital Operations Rotations; 8 weeks each in Inpatient Direct Patient Care and Ambulatory Medicine Advanced Practice Rotations; and 16 weeks of elective rotations related to career preparation interests. Relocation between clerkship sites should be expected.
    5. Students are responsible for their own housing, transportation, and incidental expenses during all IPPE and APPE rotations. It is imperative that students plan in advance for their financial needs and any other arrangements that will be required.
    6. Students will be assessed a fee to purchase malpractice liability insurance provided through the College prior to each academic year, as well as a laboratory coat meeting stated criteria. In addition, students are required to pay rental charges for a pager, as specified by the College, throughout the clerkship rotation period. They are also responsible for the cost of any drug screen that a clerkship site may require.
    7. The Purdue Division of Financial Aid (DFA) administers a variety of financial aid programs. Programs at the federal, state, and University levels are available to students who demonstrate need for financial assistance. If you are interested in receiving financial aid, you should file the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid” (FAFSA) by March 1, 2012. The FAFSA may be obtained through DFA, or you may apply using the RENEWAL FAFSA or at the web-site: http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/.

    If you have general questions, please contact DFA (765) 494-0998 (e-mail: facontact@purdue.edu). Should you have questions in completing the FAFSA form, please contact the financial aid administrator for the Pharm.D. program, Trudi Horner at (765) 494-5081 (e-mail: tmhorner@purdue.edu).

    Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) Program

    The professional curriculum leading to the Pharm.D. requires four years of study and admission into this program requires completion of the Pre-Pharmacy requirements. The entire curriculum is highly structured, allowing time for only a modest amount of elective study. Also, to complete the professional program in four years, students must consistently be successful in their completion of all of the required courses in each year of the program.

    The Doctor of Pharmacy is a professional degree, not a graduate degree. Admission into the Pharm.D. program requires some prior college level study, but not a Bachelors degree. However, while completion of other degree programs is not required for admission, it is not excluded. Every year some students join the Pharm.D. program after completing a Bachelors degree and in a few cases, other professional degrees. Individuals who have completed a five-year BS in Pharmacy program may seek a Pharm.D. though the traditional program.

    ACPE logo

    The Purdue Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, which is the national agency for the accreditation of professional degree programs in pharmacy and providers of continuing pharmacy education.

    The Pharm.D. professional program is only one step, albeit a required one, in the process of becoming a registered pharmacist. The other steps include preparation for college study, admission to college, completion of the Pre-Pharmacy requirements, and after completion of the Pharm.D., sitting for and passing the licensure examination (NAPLEX) and completing the application materials and processes required for licensure. Specifics of the examination and licensure processes vary by state, and such information is best obtained from the State Board of Pharmacy for the state of interest. Some very useful general information about the NAPLEX is available from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).

    If you are considering a career as a pharmacist and would like more information to help you in your decisions, see our pages on Becoming a Pharmacist and Career Options and Job and Salary Outlook for Pharmacists.

    Detailed information about all undergraduate and professional degree programs offered by the College of Pharmacy is available in the Pharmacy Bulletin. This PDF file is available for downloading, viewing and printing, but it requires the use of Adobe Acrobat Reader software, which is available for free.

    Academic Advising:

    Once a student is admitted to the College, he or she is assigned an individual academic advisor. All advisors in the College of Pharmacy are part of the Office of Student Services (OSS). Advisors help in planning schedules and must approve the courses which each student selects at registration (students in this program are required to meet with their advisor every semester as part of the regular registration process). They advise on electives and assist in determining the best schedule for a student to take. The advisor is the first person to go to when a student is having academic or personal problems, and should be considered a personal friend. Remember, your advisor is interested in you, and has the experience and ability to give you help when you need it.

    Costs/Expenses:

    Students in the Professional program must pay a special professional tuition rate. This rate applies only during study in the Professional program (typically four years), and does not apply while in the Pre-Pharmacy program. The University Undergraduate Admissions office maintains an estimate of costs of attendance. However, the University’s fee structure is complex, and depends in part on which semester you first enrolled at Purdue. Please see the Bursar’s list of tuition and fee rates for Pharm.D. students for more information.

    Practical Experience:

    Students in this program are required to gain experience in the practice of pharmacy. This is accomplished though required practical experience courses. This training meets some of the practical training requirements of the Indiana State Board of Pharmacy for licensure in Indiana.

    In addition to the required practical experience, students have the option of gaining experience in research. Several research fellowships for undergraduate research are available on a competitive basis to students enrolled in one of the College of Pharmacy undergraduate programs. These include summer research fellowships as well as many other opportunities for interested students. These are administered by Dr. Eric Barker, the Associate Dean for Research.

    PharmD Facts

    PharmD Program: Approved, effective September 1, 2011

    The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences aims to address the needs of society as they relate to pharmacy and the pharmaceutical sciences.

    Program changes are essential to program viability, maintenance of program quality and service to both the student and society. They flow from institutional vigilance and continued review of the needs of society and students.
    What prompted the proposal of a PharmD program?
    The nature and delivery of professional education is changing.  Transitions from the last 50 years include:

    •  a change in the professional roles of pharmacists,
    •  an increasing complexity in the healthcare environment and
    •  changes in health care needs.

    Canadian pharmacists have increasingly become part of primary health care, working on teams, and as prescribers of medications.  The PharmD program will focus on the:

    • background and clinical skills required for the provision of optimal patient-centered care
    • preparation for pharmacists’ increased scope of practice
    • additional prescribing authority
    • contributions to team-based care

    What does the PharmD represent?

    The PharmD academic credential will be an undergraduate, professional doctorate. The one year post-professional (post-BSc) degree will serve to recognize advanced education in patient care. Unlike the PhD that focuses on research, the PharmD degree is a clinical doctorate degree.

     

    How does this PharmD program compare to others in Canada and the USA?

    This program proposal differs from the post-graduate PharmD programs at the University of Toronto and the University of British Columbia. Their two-year full time programs provide advanced education in clinical pharmacy practice.  Our program will also differ from the entry-level PharmD programs in Quebec and the USA that are designed as entry-to-practice degree programs without an intervening BSc degree.

     

    Will I need a PharmD degree instead of a BSc in Pharmacy to practice?

    No, the BSc will remain the entry to practice degree in Canada, just as it has in the USA.

     

    What will be the Faculty’s view on hiring practices and salary expectations regarding
    the PharmD credential?

    The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences strongly supports pharmacists to be hired and paid on the basis of their skills, not the academic credential that they hold.

     

    What kind of impact will PharmD graduates have on practicing pharmacists?

    We do not expect that PharmD degree graduates will have a negative impact on existing graduates: just as it had no impact when USA PharmD programs became required in 2000. The faculty has, however, ensured the PharmD program will include the ability for practicing pharmacists to apply and earn this academic credential.

     

    How many PharmD students will the program hold?

    The Faculty plans to enroll 13 students, immediately upon graduation, for September 2013. The program will also include placement for up to 10 practicing pharmacists starting in 2014.

     

    Do you need your license to practice to apply for the PharmD program?

    Yes, those who apply to the PharmD program must have their license to practice pharmacy in the province where their experiential education occurs (expected to be almost exclusively Alberta).

     

    When is the application deadline for practicing pharmacists?

    The application deadline for the September 2014 term is March 1, 2014.

     

    What are the academic requirements?

    The minimum requirements for admission to the PharmD program are a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree from a recognized institution. Normally, an overall GPA of at least 3.0 or equivalent in a Bachelor of Pharmacy degree is required.

    Where can I find more details on the academic requirements?

    The University of Alberta’s 2012 – 2013 Calendar will list the details: http://www.admission.ualberta.ca/

     

    What are the additional requirements?

    • Proof of active registration with the Alberta College of Pharmacists or licensed to practice pharmacy in Canada.*

    • Authorization to administer drugs by injection.*

    • Official transcripts from a Bachelor of Pharmacy program and any other postsecondary education completed.

    • Test of Spoken English (TSE): Applicants must meet a spoken English requirement. (See §13.3.2.).

    • Current curriculum vitae (CV) or resume with a cover letter that outlines pharmacy practice experiences since graduation from pharmacy school, career goals, and any other postsecondary education completed including residency experience.

    • Three letters of recommendation.

    *Documentation of successful registration and authorization to administer drugs by injection can occur after admission to the program.

    Pharm.D. Admission Requirements

    All applicants to the Working Professional Doctor of Pharmacy program must be licensed, practicing pharmacists in the United States or Canada. Canadian residents who graduated from non-U.S. or Canadian institutions must have a U.S. pharmacy license, in addition to a Canadian pharmacy license.

    Applicants must hold a B.S. in Pharmacy from a regionally accredited United States institution, a Canadian institution, or hold a U.S. equivalent B.S. in Pharmacy from an International institution.

    Please contact your Enrollment Advisor at 1-800-431-6687 if you have questions.

    Program Start Options

    Applicants can choose to begin the program as a degree-seeking or non-degree seeking student.

    • Degree-Seeking Student: The degree-seeking student is an applicant that has successfully complete their application and has been officially accepted into the program by the College of Pharmacy Admissions Committee.

    Doctor of Pharmacy Program Overview

    General

    The Pharm.D. program at U.B.C. is Canada’s first! It is a two-year fulltime post-baccalaureate professional degree providing advanced education in clinical pharmacy practice. Individuals completing this program will be capable of fulfilling advanced clinical pharmacy practice roles in hospitals, ambulatory care or community-based sites, primary care, academia, managed care, government, consulting, industry and in health care agencies.

    The PharmD program is comprised of two components: 8 months of didactic coursework followed by 12 months of clinical rotations. The didactic curriculum provides the student with a core of professional knowledge and skills in the biomedical, pharmaceutical and clinical sciences. This ensures a strong educational base for the clinical component of the program. The emphasis in the coursework is on pharmacotherapeutics and pathophysiology. Other courses include pharmacokinetics, physical assessment, clinical trials, statistics, pharmacy management, and immunopathology.

    Doctor of Pharmacy Admission Information

    Applicants to the PharmD program must hold a Bachelors degree in pharmacy and current registration as a pharmacist with the College of Pharmacists of BC (http://www.bcpharmacists.org/registration_licensure/pharmacist.php) or hold registration (qualifying examination) with the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (http://www.pebc.ca/EnglishPages/General/HomePage.html).

    Applicants must have also earned at least 80% in 12 credits of coursework and an overall average of 74% in the remaining coursework in the last two years of the applicant’s undergraduate pharmacy program.

    Other criteria considered in the selection process for admission to the PharmD program include professional pharmacy practice experience or residency training, letters of reference, a written statement of professional and career goals, and interview information.

    Application Procedures

    The online application for the Graduating Class of 2014 (commencing August 2012) will open on November 15, 2011.

    The clinical rotations provide students with the opportunity to apply knowledge acquired in the classroom to the practice of pharmacy in a variety of patient care settings. In addition to refining advanced pharmacy practice skills, students gain confidence in applying evidence-based principles to drug treatment decisions. Core rotations in adult internal medicine, ambulatory/primary care, cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine, are required for all students. The clinical year is supplemented by a number of elective rotations that may be selected by the student, including infectious diseases, pediatrics, clinical research and other specialty rotations.

    I THINK SO THAT THIS COMMENTS WILL BE HELPFUL FOR YOU 

    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone know anything about working with a PharmD in Canada.
    Is the degree accepted, is the job market and pay similar to here?
    Any info appreciated.

    Thanks!

    UT-Frank
    Since healthcare is socialized, PharmD’s don’t make nearly as much as they do in the U.S.

    We just talked about this in discussion the other day.

    CityMermaid
    Thanks,
    It makes sense about the pay.

    Thanks!

    Canada is not yet on the all pharm. D program, so it takes 6 years to get your pharm D over there. Consequently not many have their pharm D. The pay as well is a lot less than in US. Depending on experience, area, size of the hospital you could be making anywhere from 30-38 canadian dolars, which is like 26-34 american. WHereas in retail in Canada you may make as much as 45 canadian or like 37-38 american, but in States you make WAY more. Say in hospital you would be making starting 40+, whereas in retail even more. Plus in States pharm D’s get to do more stuff than pharm D’s in canada. Good luck.

    Also to get licenced in Canada you have to do their boards and a 3 month internship working 40 hours a week, or a 6 mos internship working 18 hours a week.

    Maybe I should help clear some of the confusion here… I’m Canadian ;). The professional degree in Canada is a B.Sc. in Pharmacy, its a four year program that requires at least one year of undergrad at university before applying – most successful applicants already hold a degree.

    Canada does not have “socialized medicine” per say… we have public health insurance. But, this insurance does not cover pharmacy at all, only “medically necessary” procedures and a few other things that are thought to be important like eye exams for children and seniors. People either pay out of pocket or the pharmacist bills the patients private, employer insurance for their meds.

    The above income estimate is definately not correct – I would assume that most are making around 100K, some much more… but this is what I found on the web:

    Licensed pharmacists usually make between $50,000 and $65,000 a year. Earnings vary depending on experience and responsibilities as well as the size of the employer. Those working for hospital pharmacies in urban areas earn higher salaries than those working in small community pharmacies in rural areas. Those who own and successfully run community pharmacies may make as much as $80,000 or $90,000 a year.

    Hope that helps!!

    hmm…I think that depends on where you go. I was talking to someone who was from Canada (can’t remember which part) but the first post on salaries was around what she said. She was trying to come down to the states and work after she got her degree.

    Back to the topic:

    I found these pages that give a brief overview of the process of taking your degree across the US/Canadian border.
    Canadian degree –> US (http://www.overseascareer.com/pharmacy_career/countries/pharmacist_usa.htm)
    US degree –> Canada (http://www.overseascareer.com/pharmacy_career/countries/pharmacist_canada.htm)

    Apteka
    Thanks for the previous (helpful) posts! We’ve been considering this too, as my husband is from Canada as well and we’re considering a move up north in the next few years… as it stands, here’s something I also found helpful:

    http://www dot ubcpharmacy dot org/cpe/programs/IPGProgram.htm

    or

    http://www.ubcpharmacy.org/cpe/programs/IPGProgram.htm

    (not sure if the link will work otherwise)

    Currently, the cost would be $13K (CDN) for an additional 6 months of education through U of T (Leslie Dan SOP…) Ack.. after taking out as many loans to be at the state school I am at now, not sure if I can deal with another $10K (US) for a six month program… I have been hearing that reciprocity agreements might be changing in the next few years, but I’m not holding my breath! :)

    jefguth
    hmm,
    Doesn’t really sound like grads from the US would need to take a program like that. I think that as long as you do the exams and any requireed internship then that should be satisfactory. I think programs like these are meant more to give qualificatios to grads from outside North American – such as pharmacists from UK and other parts of europe or elsewhere where the education is similar but not recognized or not as clinical in nature.

    Jefguth…. thanks!
    I hope not, but this is the only info I have pulled up so far… do you have any further info on how we can move back ‘home’? (My husband is from Windsor, went to Univerisity there, and his sister went to Western and is living in Toronto- we’d love to head up north someday!)

    Any advice would be appreciated- or feel free to send me a PM!

    jefguth
    HI Apteka,

    Unfortunately I don’t know much about the process here (only in my third year of Honours Science at U of Waterloo), but check this page out, looks like it should answer some of your questions or provide some contact info someone who will be able to help you more:

    http://www.ocpinfo.com There is a link on the left titled “Triained in Canada / US”

    You might also like to check out the discussion board of the Undergrad Pharmacy Society at UofT:

    http://www.utups.ca/forum/

    Pharmcists are in very high demand in Ontario right now. UofT is increasing enrolled by a large figure for 20005, and is also creating a joint program with Waterloo, to begin in 2007 or 20008 – So I’m sure you will not have much trouble heading North!

    Hope that is of help to you and your husband.

    Apteka
    Thank you! I appreciate the info! I’ll look into it. I’m still in my 1st year here in SF, so it kind of also depends on how quickly I’ll need to pay off my student debt. :scared:

    Hopefully it wont’ take too long! We’re hoping to get back up north soon, my husband misses ‘cottage life’, snowmobiling, winters in Ontario, and life up on the lake!

    Hope you’re keeping warm up there!

    http://www.news.utoronto.ca/bin5/040329a.asp

    Hey jef, i’m another Canadian over here =D only I’m at UBC.
    I heard getting into pharm school is even harder than med school at UofT is that true?

    Does that mean the pay for a pharmacist over there is greater than it is in BC? ( our average salary is around $55000/year )

    jefguth
    Hey Cure4cancer,

    Thats what I heard from a UofT rep when I was in high school, but honestly, I don’t think he really knew what he was talking about! Medicine in definately harder to get into at UofT (or anywhere in Ontario/Canada). I think the main reason people think this is true is because UofT Pharmacy recieves a little more than 1000 applications for 180 spots (240 for fall 2005). Also, Pharmacy (at UofT) doesn’t require the extensive essays and personal statements and intervies required by medicine. Furthermore, applicants do not have to write a standardized test like medicine or pharmacy in the USA and some other schools in Canada. There is a test, however it is more of a written interview than a test of critical knowledge. Finally, UofT only requires one year undergrad and some of the courses can be supplemented with OAC/highschool courses.

    I don’t think its really all that hard to get in, plus there are increasing enrollement for 2005 admissions and the University of Waterloo is building a school of pharmacy in cooperation with UofT to open in 2007 at the earliest. That school should have around 140 seats if I recall correctly.

    What would make it harder for someone like you is that UofT will only allow a maximum of 10% out of province students.

    I tend to think that the average salary you gave is low. Don’t people in BC make more money? Thought it was a very expesive place to live, or is that just Vancouver? I don’t really know for certain, but I’ve been told new grads can expect to start making at least $33/hour (thats about $70 000 for a 40h work week) and some will make more depending on geographic location ($45+/hour in northern or rural ontario)

    From what I gather you can get a PharmD in the US and it transfers over in Canada after you take their licensing exams.

    Ya this is my understanding as well.

    On a sidenote, from looking at this thread, people were much more civil/helpful back in the day, in the much simpler and innocent days of 2004.

    Prospective Students / Doctor of Pharmacy

    Entry Level PharmD Program Overview

    The entry-level PharmD program prepares students for licensure as a pharmacist. PharmDThe PharmD program constitutes four years of study. The first three years consist of mostly didactic course work covering principles of pharmaceutical sciences and pharmaceutical care. The fourth year is full-time professional experience. Class size for the entry-level PharmD is 130 students each year.

    What is Pharmacy?

    The mission of pharmacy practice is to help people get the best outcomes from medication therapies to achieve a healthier society. Before the Industrial Revolution, pharmacists manually compounded most medicines. With the growth of pharmaceutical manufacturing, pharmacists compounded fewer drugs and focused on safe and accurate dispensing procedures.

    students in labIn the Information Age, pharmacists have placed an emphasis on a practice orientation known as pharmaceutical care which entails a shared responsibility between the patient and pharmacist toward achieving positive therapeutic outcomes. Pharmaceutical care inherently invokes a patient-focused orientation to pharmacy practice. Today pharmacists provide comprehensive drug therapy management including the provision of medications and medical devices, educating patients and other health care providers on the proper use of prescription and over-the-counter products, and monitoring the outcomes of drug therapy.

    Students with a desire to help people in a health care environment and an interest in math and science will find the profession of pharmacy particularly well suited to them. Drug therapy is the most common means of treating disease. With the development of more and more complex and expensive therapies, the aging of the United States population, and the dynamic nature of the health care market, pharmacists are well positioned to help patients receive the best benefits from their medications and to reduce the estimated $100 billion spent each year in the United States due to the improper use of prescription drug products.

    Career Opportunities in Pharmacy

    A graduate from the College of Pharmacy can choose from a variety of career paths tailored to individual interests and aptitudes with a choice of lucrative employment opportunities. Pharmacists in Community setting provide pharmaceutical care to ambulatory patients including the provision of prescription and non-prescription drugs, medical equipment and devices, and drug related information and educational services to patients, the public, and other health care professionals. Pharmacists in institutional settings (e.g., hospitals) provide service to inpatients and are involved in the medication dispensing process, clinical services, drug information and a number of specialty practices (e.g., cardiology, psychiatry, pediatrics, oncology, nuclear pharmacy, nutritional support).

    The pharmaceutical industry offers career opportunities in sales and marketing, drug research and development, quality assurance, and professional services. Faculty positions in colleges of pharmacy offer the opportunity to teach, conduct research and provide professional service. Pharmacists are employed by a number of federal agencies involved in drug regulation or national health care services. For example, the Food and Drug Administration, Drug Enforcement Agency, National Institutes of Health, Public Heath Services, Veteran’s Administration, and military services provide exciting career opportunities. Nontraditional areas of employment also include pharmaceutical journalism, pharmacy law, and positions on state boards of pharmacy or in professional associations.

    Salary Trends

    Salaries in the profession of pharmacy are on an upward trend, with the majority of pharmacy graduates reporting annual salaries $90,000-$95,000.

    College Preparation

    The faculty at Ohio State voted to require a Bachelors Degree for entry into the PharmD program, beginning Autumn Quarter 2007. One can still be finishing the degree when applying, but it must be completed prior to PharmD matriculation. This degree can be in any major as long as the required prerequisites are completed as well. In fact, candidates are encouraged to consider diverse areas of study in preparation for a people-oriented profession.

    [ back to top ]

    General Undergraduate Degree Requirements

    Most new undergraduate students at Ohio State will enroll directly into their major of choice. In some cases, entrance into the major will occur after satisfactory completion of a list of prerequisite courses. If students are undecided about their college major, they will enroll in USAS – Undergraduate Student Academic Services, for career exploration. Advising is available through the College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Pharmacy to help students in planning pre-professional course work.

    Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D): Course Details
    Advertisements

    Pharm.D is a professional degree honored for students who undergo their graduation course in Pharmacy Doctoral Programme. The Pharm D took its origin from a latin word ‘Pharmacaie Doctor’ signifying ‘Doctor of Pharmacy’. The pharmacy education in India is under the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) which initiated the 6 years Pharm.D course in India from the year 2008. The course is registered under the Pharmacy Act of 1948.

    The Pharm.D course comes in two types:

    One is Pharm.D course with duration of five years and besides this students will have to work as an intern or do the residency for 1 year.
    Second one is Pharm.D (post Baccalaureate) where in the duration of the course is 3 years including 2 years theoretical study plus one year internship or residency as per PCI.

    Pharmacy Council of India is the sole body that decides the number of admissions taken for the Pharm.D course. It differs from time to time. Currently it offers admission for 30 seats in Pharm.D and 10 Seats for Pharm.D (PB) every year. The course does not confine to theoretical study alone. It broadens its programme towards penetrative laboratory experiments and many research objects. Only few colleges in India offers Pharm.D course recognized by PCI.

    Advantages or Benefits of Doing Doctor of Pharmacy

    As the Pharma.D is course that offers doctoral pharmacy, those who perform pharmacy as their profession under the Pharmacy Act will be entitled to prefix ‘Dr’ before their name.
    Pharm. D course is registered under the Pharmacy Act of 1948 for undergoing pharmacy as a profession.
    After graduation in Pharm.D, students can opt for Ph.D programmes if they are qualified.

    Eligibility Criteria for PHARM D program

    For Pharm.D (6 year course):

    All the aspirants who apply for Pharm.D course must have cleared their higher secondary board examination with chemistry or physics as obligatory subjects together with Biology or Math.

    Those who pass in D.Pharm course can also apply provided the institution from which they took the degree should be recognized under section 12 of the Pharmacy Act lay down by the Pharmacy Council of India.

    For Pharm.D (Post Baccalaureate):

    Welcome to US PharmD

    Pharmacists must earn a Pharm. D. degree from an accredited college or pharmacy school. To be admitted into one of these programs, applicants must have completed at least two years of postsecondary education. Upon graduation, students must pass the North American Pharmacist Licensure Exam and renew their license every two years. About 62% of licensed pharmacists work in community pharmacies and 23% work in hospitals. 

    Pharmacy Technicians may obtain on-the-job training, though employers generally prefer applicants who have some formal education or certification. Formal technician programs require both class and lab work focusing on medical and pharmaceutical technology, pharmaceutical calculations, recordkeeping, practical techniques, as well as pharmacy law and ethics. About 71% of Pharmacy Technician jobs are in pharmacies, grocery stores, department stores, or mass retailers.

    Online Pharmacy Schools and Programs

    Online pharmacy school has become a new method to introduce online students to a new option for further study.  Since pharmacy school no longer offers a bachelor degree, the program is a bit more time consuming than normal degrees, although it now allows students to study in online classrooms rather than travel to a commuter school or move across the country to attend classes.

    Online pharmacy schools actually involve a higher degree of study since the students need to have the skills necessary to learn on their own through hands-on methods.  Traditional schools allow students to train with a professor in person, but online schools require the student to practice independently, therefore making them less reliant on a superior.  While this may seem to be a challenging undertaking, many disciplines now offer online degree programs and technology has allowed nearly every subject to be taught via the internet through audio and video. 

    Most pharmacy students in general have achieved a previous bachelor’s degree or have at least three years of college experience, making them more self-sufficient and responsible with this type of “do-it-yourself” homework.  Additionally, pharmacy students have committed themselves to this particular field, which makes the learning process much easier than if they were simply attaining a first degree to find any type of job. 

    Creighton is currently the only entry-level online program that is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Pharmacy Education and sets them apart from other online pharmacy schools.  This school additionally offers a Doctor of Pharmacy degree, which is unique to the online community, and is a growing degree within the pharmacy industry in general.  Other schools offer programs for students who are still unsure about a full commitment to pharmacy school and instead enroll in a pharmacy technician program.  This program offers students the opportunity to take a peek into the pharmacy world to determine if this is the path they want to take, without fully committing to a Doctor of Pharmacy degree.  Additionally, pharmacy technician certificates give graduates the knowledge and skills necessary to break into the pharmacy world and gain valuable experience. 

    The University of Florida offers online programs for students as well, including a non-traditional PharmD program for working pharmacists, allowing them to attain higher degrees while keeping their current pharmacy job.  PCDI and Penn Foster Career School both offer pharmacy technician programs, which appear to be a growing niche within the pharmacy community.  Comparable to medical coding degrees which offer students the opportunity to peek into the medical community, this certificate in turn allows students to peek into the pharmacy community.  Sometimes this is all students need to determine if they want to continue on their pharmacy school course or seek an alternative degree.  Without wasting too much time or money, this popular online degree gives students a chance to view first-hand the benefits of pharmacy school.

    Online education is becoming increasingly common throughout the college world as more traditional schools have begun to offer classes online.  Online school is still a wary subject within the educational community, but its students know the work and dedication that goes into earning an online degree, as well as the focus and determination it takes to complete assignments online.

(the undergraduate study of pharmacy takes 5 years). Applicants must defend a research or experimental thesis, and pass a rigorous examination. The PharmDr. title is highly prestigious and written in front of the name. It is different from the postgraduate Ph.D. diploma.

    [edit] France

    In France, pharmacy studies can only be accessed through a competitive examination (“concours“, with numerus clausus) happening at the end of the first year of health studies. Most candidates hold a Scientific Baccalaureate from the equivalent to high schools (lycée). In case of failure, it is possible to retry once. Yearly success rate depends on the university’s current numerus clausus and the number or registered students, ranging from 10 to 30% bearing in mind that second-time participants are three to four times more likely to succeed than students trying for the first time.

    The studies last a minimum of 6 years, or 9 years for students choosing residency (hospital pharmacy or medical biology). It is accessible through another competitive exam, even more selective. It lasts four years and gives another diploma of specialist like in medicine (DES for “diplôme d’études spécialisées” ) . Students must specialise when entering the 5th year, and choose between dispensing pharmacy, pharmaceutical industry or hospital residency. In any case, a 12-month part-time hospital externship is mandatory during the 5th year, although some flexibility is possible for students choosing industry.

    6th year for industry is generally dedicated to further specialisation with a former Professional Master’s degree or a former Research Master’s degree including internship.

    In France, since the harmonization of European Union in September 2005, the student who chooses the industry/research orientation have a 6 month period of part time hospital externship, and 3 to 6 month of full time training in a pharmaceutical industry or a research lab.

    [edit] Hungary

    In Hungary, pharmacists obtain their Master’s degree, after 5 years of study. On the fifth year, students must undergo a professional training, that lasts for six months in a public pharmacy or a hospital. At the end of this period, the student must pass a nationwide exam to be legally entitled for practicing the profession of pharmacy, after acquiring the pharmacist work license. According to the new law in 2008, all pharmacists, who have acquired the Masters degree of Pharmacy, are entitled to the Doctor of Pharmacy.

    [edit] Italy

    In Italy the Master’s degree in Pharmacy last 5 years, which includes a 6-months professional training in a public pharmacy or hospital. At the end of this period, the student must pass a nationwide exam to be legally entitled for practising the profession of pharmacist. The subscription to “Pharmacists Order”, or in Italian “Ordine dei Farmacisti”, is required for working in public pharmacies or hospitals. It is not required if the pharmacist is working in a private entity (e.g. a pharmaceutical company).

    After having obtained the Master degree in Pharmacy, the student may also choose to become a specialist in Hospital Pharmacy, with an additional 4 year professional study program and respective final exam.

    [edit] Netherlands

    The education of pharmacists in the Netherlands requires a minimum of six years of university study. EU-harmonisation has led to division into three bachelor and three master years. A bachelor title is, however, not used at all professionally. The Dutch consider the educational level of their current (M.Sc.) Degree in Pharmacy to be comparable to the PharmD title in use in the United States. Before the harmonization a four year Master of Science was superseded by two more years of university education preparing for pharmacy practice. To become a hospital pharmacist a 4-year residency program has to completed after that.

    [edit] Portugal

    In Portugal, Pharmacy studies consists in 4 years of basic school, 5 years of preparatory school, and three years of high school where afterward the student is submitted to nationwide exams. The process is the same for every degree the student chooses, from medicine to engineering. The student takes the Master’s degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences (equivalent to the PharmD program) in one of the 9 Pharmacy faculties with their own respective numerous clausus which comprises a 6 year rigorous study (5 with the uniformities in EU teaching). Finished the degree, the academic title of Doctor of Pharmacy is issued. The graduate can then enroll in the regulatory institution for the Pharmacist profession in Portugal called, “Portuguese Pharmaceutical Society” or in Portuguese “Ordem dos Farmacêuticos”. After the enrollment the title of Pharmacist is issued. Afterward, Pharmacists can start their career in a limitless number of professional areas that range from community pharmacies, drug development, fundamental or applied research, biotechnology to areas such as forensic sciences, toxicology, regulatory affairs, clinical analysis, law enforcement (scientific police), bromatology, drug marketing, regulatory authorities, university teachers, etc. The Pharmacists can also choose to become a specialist in one of following areas of activity: Pharmaceutical Industry, Regulatory Affairs, Hospital Pharmacy, and Clinical Analysis. Each specialization requires an additional 5 year professional study program guided by a tutor in the respective area of knowledge. This training includes regular evaluations by the professional order, which also requires an exam at the end of the 5 year training. After the success at the exam, the Pharmacist then becomes a specialist in its area of expertise.

    [edit] Spain

    In Spain, Pharmacy studies can be accessed after completing five and a half years of University College (with at least 6 months of initiation to Pharmacy Practice). The Licenciado en Farmacia or Grado en Farmacia (equivalent to the PharmD program) Spanish degree is the only title that allows to practice the profession of Pharmacy in Spain. To become a Hospital Pharmacist a person with a degree in Pharmacy must enter a selection process (national selection process called FIR) to initiate a Pharmacy Residency period of professional training during 4 additional years (including one full year of advanced clinical practice in different medical wards). Apart from the professional degrees, like with any other university studies, Pharmacy degree allows to pursue an academic career by enrolling masters and doctorates programs (MSc and PhD) in several scientific fields (pharmaceutical technology, pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics, biomedical sciences, cosmetics & pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical and organic chemistry, physical chemistry, food sciences, pharmacology, toxicology, public health, etc.). Masters usually lasts 1–2 years and PhD’s no less than 4 years.

    In summary, in Spain an entry-level pharmacy degree lasts 5 years and a Hospital Pharmacy Specialist needs 9.5 years of education and/or training. Hospital Pharmacy Residents are paid during their residency period. There are other residencies avalailable to pharmacists such as Medical Biology, Clinical Biochemistry, Immunology, Microbiology, Radiopharmacy, Pharmaceutical Analysis, and Industrial Pharmacy lasting from 2 to 4 years. Pharmacists usually work as retail pharmacists (private practice), hospital pharmacists, primary care pharmacists, medical biologists, scientists (private and public biomedical research institutions), as university professors (Pharmacy, Medicine, Biology, Food Sciences, Biochemistry, Veterinary, Nursing, etc.), and as technicians and exceutive managers (pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies and governmental institutions).

    [edit] Middle East

    [edit] Iran

    In 1930 Tehran University changed the Pharmacy degree from Masters to doctorate and the duration of the study was increased to 5 years. Graduates need to present and defend their theses in different fields of pharmacy and this adds another year to their studies and generally after 6 years students can graduate as Doctor in Pharmacy. The Masters degree in Pharmacy was available in Tehran University since 1926.

    [edit] Jordan

    In Jordan, this program was first offered in 2000. This program is not to be confused with Pharmacy Program. When the program was first offered, students shared their first 3 years with medicine student, the last two with pharmacy students and one year of clinical work. After 2006, the program’s nature had changed; a new curricula was developed specifically for this program. Students now complete 5 years of academical work and 1 year of clinical practice to earn their Doctor of Pharmacy(B.Sc.) degree. This program is offered at some public universities in Jordan, such as Jordan University of Science and Technology and University of Jordan.

    [edit] Lebanon

    In Lebanon, the first Doctor of Pharmacy degree was awarded by the Lebanese University Faculty of Pharmacy (upon a decree by the Lebanese government) to its graduating class of 19 students in 1992. The program was first established by Dr. Anwar Bikhazi, a Pharmacy graduate of the American University of Beirut with a PhD from the University of Michigan. The 6-year entry level PharmD program at the Lebanese University adopted the US PharmD curriculum and training. Enrollment into the program is highly competitive with an average admission rate of 20% of applicants. This is the leading PharmD program in the Middle East, which was followed by other mirror copies of similar programs in Lebanon and neighboring countries, such as the one provided by the Lebanese American University.

    [edit] Qatar

    In Qatar, pharmacy degrees are offered by the new College of Pharmacy at the Qatar University. Students were accepted into the 5-year BSc (Pharm) program commencing in 2007. Students will be accepted into the final year of the 6-year PharmD program in 2011. Accordingly, the first graduates of the PharmD program are expected in 2012. The program adopts a Canadian curriculum and received early accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP) in February 2009. This is the first international program to undergo review and receive accreditation by this sole Canadian accreditation agency.

    [edit] Saudi Arabia

    Started in 2001 at King Abdulaziz University, then in 2005 at Ibn-Sina University, then 2006 at KFU, then 2007 at Qassim University. In 2008, KSU College of Pharmacy at Riyadh, College of Pharmacy at Kharj, and Taif University started their PharmD programs. The degree duration in Saudi Arabia is six years in total, including one academic year of clinical rotations.

    According to the Saudi Commission for Health Specialties, if a student graduates with a (minimum six years) PharmD degree, then the graduate has the chance to further develop himself. This can be achieved by taking an Accredited Residency Training Program that is at least one year long (for a total of seven years, minimum). Upon successfully completing both the Residency program and the PharmD, the graduate can apply for Professional Equivalent (only equivalent in practice) to the Master degree in Pharmacy.It is also available in cnaq

    [edit] United Arab Emirates

Pharm D is five and half year program for high school graduates and three year (Post Baccalaureate) program for B.Pharm graduates. The course offers community pharmacy training and clinical internship training with speciality rotations. The undergraduate degree program is offered for school graduates after their A level, or 12th standard. All high school scince students with TOEFL are eligible after an entrance exam. Pharm D graduates can secure jobs as clinical pharmacists in hospitals, community pharmacists in large chain stores, in Medical insurance companies, in clinical research organizations and Pharmaceutical industries.

    [edit] North America

    [edit] Canada

    In Canada the PharmD program is offered in both English and French. Currently in Canada BScPharm (and not PharmD) is the minimum level to practice pharmacy. Students enrolled in the program must have graduated from a CCAPP (Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs) or an ACPE (Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education) school with an accredited teaching program or must have passed the PEBC (Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada) Evaluating and Qualifying examinations. As of fall 2007, the PharmD program is offered at the Université de Montréal (in French) and at the Université Laval (in French). The Université de Montréal was the first Canadian university to give this program instead of the baccalaureate program in pharmacy. A PharmD degree may also be obtained upon completion of a post-graduate program through the University of British Columbia and the University of Toronto.

    [edit] United States

    In the United States, the PharmD. (Doctor of Pharmacy) degree is a professional degree that prepares the graduate for pharmacy practice. It is awarded after four years of pharmacy school, which include one year of practical experience. Most schools require students to take an entrance test[2] (PCAT) and complete 60-90 credit hours (2–3 years) of university coursework in the sciences, mathematics, composition and humanities before entry into a professional program. Many pharmacy students complete a bachelors degree before entry to pharmacy school.

    Total time: 2–4 years undergraduate (Associate or Bachelor degree), 4 years professional (PharmD), optional 1–3 years of specialization (residency/fellowship).

    Previously, in the United States, the bachelor’s degree in pharmacy was the first-professional degree for pharmacy practice. Some schools and colleges of pharmacy offered a post-baccalaureate graduate PharmD degree. These graduate level degrees became prevalent in US programs in the late 1960s.

    In 1990, the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) mandated that a doctor of pharmacy degree would be the new first-professional degree. Currently all accredited schools and colleges of pharmacy in the US offer the PharmD degree. Many also offer post-PharmD graduate programs in specialized areas of the profession.

    For holders of BS Pharmacy degree, a two year Post-Baccularate or Post-BS Pharmacy or Non-Traditional PharmD (NTPD) is offered by more than ten (10) Universities. The programmes are offered in evening and/or weekends and/or on-line. These programmes are approved by ACPE. Around half of these ten Universities also accept foreign Pharmacy gaduates for this two year post-BS PharmD program [3].

    The current PharmD degree curriculum is very different than that of the prior BS in pharmacy and now includes extensive didactic clinical preparation and a full year of hands-on practice experience.

    In the USA, legal requirements to becoming a pharmacist include graduating with a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree from an accredited college of pharmacy, serving an internship under a licensed pharmacist, and passing a national (NAPLEX) and law exam. The designation PharmD is sometimes erroneously likened to a PhD degree which is an advanced scientific degree in this field (i.e. Phd. in Pharmacology or Pharmaceutics). PharmD holders can also earn another advanced degree in this field such as the MS in Pharmarcy offered at many US institutions. The former degree was a Bachelor of Pharmacy and required slightly less schooling and different curriculum. Due to the changes to health care in today’s society and the increasing need for counseling and medication maintenance, pharmacists have taken on a larger role as clinicians. This increase in the need for accessible health care information for consumers has led to great strides in the field of pharmacy. One result of this has been a change in the way pharmacy schools structure their curriculum as well as an advanced doctorate degree, which further sets the pharmacist apart as a trusted ally in a patient’s health care treatment regimen. In fact, pharmacists consistently rank as one of the most trusted professionals in today’s society. This degree requires the completion of at least five years of post-secondary schooling but usually requires at least 6–8 years at present time, depending on which state you live in and the pharmacy school which you attend. The former degree obtained upon completion of pharmacy school was a Bachelors in Pharmacy or BS and pharmacists with this designation were given the title RPh. In the USA, pharmacists who acquire a PharmD degree are legally allowed to add the prefix “Dr.” before his / her name.[citation needed] Pharmacy is the health profession that links the health sciences with the chemical sciences and it is charged with ensuring the safe and effective use of pharmaceutical drugs.
