Description The Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program at the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy immerses students in a demanding and comprehensive curriculum designed to meet the changing needs of today's health care environment. This program builds on the skills acquired in undergraduate pharmacy programs and intersperses experiential education through pharmacy practice rotations with didactic in-class work. The intensive program of academic and clinical education, integrating both practice and theory, provides students with the ability to independently identify, solve, and prevent complex drug-related problems. To develop the life-long learning skills necessary for future pharmacy practitioners and educators, students are required to accept a significant amount of responsibility for directing their own learning. Students' learning is guided and stimulated through the use of specifically designed problems, cases, scenarios, exercises and assignments. The course instructors and tutors function both as facilitators for students' learning and as sources of expertise. Through this learning process, students acquire additional skills such as effective communication, teamwork, self and peer-assessment, writing, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
