Practicums and Additional Expenses

Required practicum sites that have been approved as affiliated teaching sites by the Faculty will be supervised by University-appointed personnel. These practicums may be scheduled in community and hospital pharmacies, health care agencies and institutions, manufacturers in the pharmaceutical industry, and with selected pharmacy organizations. All program practicums are considered Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experiences (APPE).

Students will be required to pay the Flexible Doctor of Pharmacy practice fee. See Program and Course Fees. Students should be prepared for practicums in sites around BC and therefore should also include travel and accommodation costs for these experiences in estimating total personal expenses.
