Flex PharmD Degree
The UBC Flexible Doctor of Pharmacy (Flex PharmD) Program is for pharmacists who wish to advance their careers byattaining the PharmD degree while continuing to work full-time or part-time.
Our competency-based curriculum provides students with up-to-date professional knowledge and skills required to excel in professional practice in a wide range of pharmacy settings. It also imparts students with knowledge and skills in leadership, communication, management, and innovative practice roles. From our desire to create a PharmD program forworking pharmacists who are delivering care to their patients, we’ve designed the coursework and experiential components of the Program following a flexible schedule.
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)
Some pharmacists may already have met a number of the Program learning outcomes through prior training and/or experience. To recognize these competencies, we've developed a system whereby students can apply for course credit for knowledge and skills previously acquired through formal and/or non-formal learning, such as Residency programs, Board of Pharmacy Specialties (BPS), on-the-job experience, independent study, etc.
