The International Pharmacy Graduate (IPG) program at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto is an academic bridging program that prepares internationally educated pharmacists to meet Canadian entry-to-practice requirements and develop skills to care for patients in the context of an evolving profession.
Recent changes in pharmacists’ scope of practice and entry-to-practice requirements have resulted in the need for the program to be renewed.
Beginning in 2018, a new single-streamed blended IPG program will be launched. This program combines the best of both classroom and online learning and offers an updated curriculum that reflects the enhanced clinical role of pharmacists in Canada, and emerging trends in the profession.
Learners will engage in learning activities both remotely and in person, on the University of Toronto campus, in alternating Blocks. On campus activities take place in the Walmart Canada International Pharmacy Education Centre, located at 256 McCaul Street, 4th floor or the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy located at 144 College Street.
The IPG program is committed to ensuring academic excellence in pharmacy education and to providing a supportive learning environment. In addition to covering current and emerging topics in pharmacotherapy, pharmacy practice and the Canadian healthcare system, learners will also gain critical language, workplace, and patient care skills necessary for licensure in Canada.
