Intern Registration for the University of Toronto’s Post-Graduate Doctor of Pharmacy Program Students

First approved: August 2013

Revised: October 2014

The post-graduate Doctor of Pharmacy Program at the University of Toronto attracts students from outside of Ontario, and requires the second year students to complete experiential clinical rotations that may be offered in Ontario. These individuals are not eligible to register as a pharmacist without having successfully completed the College’s Jurisprudence Examination, and may not wish to register as pharmacists for the short duration of time they will be performing any controlled acts in Ontario. Their practice will be under supervision and regularly assessed by the program.

Policy

Students enrolled in the University of Toronto’s Post-Graduate Doctor of Pharmacy Program, and who are registered in good standing as pharmacists and practising in another Canadian jurisdiction, may register as interns for the purpose of completing the practice rotations of this program.

Process

The applicant will submit an application indicating that he or she wishes to be registered as an intern, including evidence of his or her pharmacist registration in another Canadian province. The applicant’s enrollment in the University of Toronto’s Post-Graduate Doctor of Pharmacy Program will be confirmed before the application may be processed. The applicant will be notified that his or her application has been processed within five to ten business days.

Decision Criteria

This policy is only applicable where:

  1. The applicant is registered in good standing in another Canadian province;
  2. The applicant has practised as a pharmacist in that Canadian province in the full scope of practice within the three years prior to submitting his or her application; and
  3. The applicant’s enrollment in the University of Toronto’s Post-Graduate Doctor of Pharmacy Program can be confirmed.
Possible Outcomes

Intern registration granted

The applicant will be issued a certificate of registration as a intern subject to the terms, conditions and limitations of that certificate, including the requirement for pharmacist supervision.
