Welcome to pharmacy education

The Department of Pharmacy at Sunnybrook has a well-established commitment to excellence in academic and practice-based teaching. Many of the pharmacy staff has cross-appointments (i.e. lecturer, assistant professor and associate professor) with the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. As such, pharmacy clinicians are actively involved in educating students in the undergraduate (BScPhm), traditional doctor of pharmacy (PharmD), combined BScPhm/PharmD and graduate studies (MSc and PhD) Programs. Students from the newly created School of Pharmacy at the University of Waterloo are also on-site for their co-op clinical and research rotations. In addition, the department has post-baccalaureate students in our pharmacy practice residency, ambulatory practice residency and fellowship (e.g. antimicrobial stewardship, oncology, etc.) programs.

In the undergraduate program at U of T, we provide students clinical training for the early practical experience (EPE - year one), early hospital experience (EHE - year two), early practical experience (EPE - year two), structured practical experience program (SPEP - year four), combined BScPhm/PharmD and full- and part-time traditional doctor of pharmacy programs.

Many of our staff are guest lecturers or coordinate full-courses in the undergraduate and doctor of pharmacy programs at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy. These include courses in pharmacotherapeutics, pharmacokinetics, hospital administration, professional labs, as well as faculty-based continuing education programs.

The pharmacy staff are actively involved in the training of pharmacy technicians, international pharmacy graduates, continuous education programs (community and hospital pharmacists), interprofessional education (IPE) and community-based patient educational programs.

The Department of Pharmacy has clearly established education as a departmental priority and continuously strives to have a positive impact on the development and direction of pharmacy practice education in Canada.
