Feedback for Proposed Revisions to By-law No 3 — Fees & Public Register

Pharmacist  ·  Nov. 8, 2015

Structured Practical Training fees should not be eliminated; reduced from $410 to $300 is acceptable. The cost of the program must balance the revenue generated. Otherwise, it is subsidize by other programs or area of expenses at the College. Jurisprudence exam sitting fee should remain the same. This is to deter students from writing exams before they are ready. Registration filing fee should increase from $130 to $250.

Hospital fees should be tiered according to size (no. Of beds). Numbers to be discussed amongst OCP committee members. If ODB can tiered dispensing fee to smaller rural pharmacies, why OCP cannot come up with a workable formula to do what I have suggested? Using the argument of how it currently charges fees for community pharmacies as a guideline is unsatisfactory explaination. Community pharmacies are private enterprises. Hospital pharmacies are Public enterprises. Therefore fee structure need to be thoroughly discussed, all avenues explored, before submitting to committee for approval.
