The International Pharmacy Graduate (IPG) program at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto, provides academic courses that will assist International Pharmacy Graduates to meet entry-to-practice requirements for licensure. The academic courses are designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of International Pharmacy
Graduates related to pharmacy practice in Canada and are meant to be comprehensive
in their scope. The IPG Program is committed to ensuring academic excellence in
pharmacy education and to providing a supportive learning environment.
Pharmacotherapy, jurisprudence, practice management, pharmaceutical care, drug
information and the Canadian health care system are just some of the topics covered.
Learners also gain critical language, workplace, and practice skills necessary for licensure
in Canada. Learners enrolled in IPG program courses learn innovative Canadian models for
pharmacy practice, which will help them identify and resolve medication-related issues and
upgrade their skills in pharmaceutical care.
