Our approach to educating the pharmacists of tomorrow is simple—and human-focused. It's hands-on, cross-disciplinary and deeply rooted in best practices. One of those (very) best practices is having our student pharmacists work alongside experienced, knowledgeable practice educators. This mentoring relationship forms a core part of our Entry-to-Practice programs.
Whether it's the Entry-to-Practice BScPharm (phasing out in 2018) or our new Entry-to-Practice PharmD, UBC Pharm Sci endeavours to graduate pharmacists who are well-rounded (and well-grounded), trained and educated in all aspects of pharmacy care, and able to fulfill roles beyond those required of pharmacists. It's a new era of patient care, and we're making sure our grads meet the health care field where it needs them to be. Our practicum experiences are an integral part of getting our grads there.
