About

Your pharmacy career starts here

At Dalhousie University’s College of Pharmacy, you’ll join over 360 undergraduate and graduate students in our mission to enhance health through pharmaceutical education, community service and research.

You might think of the pharmacist as wearing a white lab coat and standing behind the drugstore counter. But pharmacy as a profession has undergone a dramatic shift in recent years. Today, it's much more patient focused.

Pharmacists now take medication histories, identify goals for drug therapy, provide education to patients regarding medications, make recommendations to other healthcare providers about drug therapy, prescribe medications, give vaccinations and much more.

The College of Pharmacy gives students the knowledge and skills to provide drug therapy which improves patient health. The program's core curriculum is offered by problem-based learning (PBL), and supported by other types of courses including Critical Appraisal Series (CAS), Practical Experience Program (PEP) and Skills Lab. 

With over a century of history behind us, we’ve had time to build a strong international reputation and solid programs that provide everything you’ll need to start your new career.

We’re also accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs (CCAPP), giving your degree the credibility you’ve earned.

"The Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program of the College of Pharmacy at Dalhousie University has been awarded the status of Full Accreditation by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs for a three year term 2016-2019."
