Launched in the fall of 2015, the Entry-to-Practice (E2P) PharmD program aligns with pharmacist education programs offered by other Canadian universities and addresses the expanding scope of practice of pharmacists in today's health care environment. It also offers students earlier hands-on experiences and expanded opportunities to broaden their engagement with the pharmacy community.
