Program information

Do you want to be a leader in pharmacy? The MPharm in Advanced Pharmacy Practice is a clinical pharmacy program designed to build future leaders by enhancing the clinical, research, and teaching skills of pharmacists.

Graduates of the program will be positioned to become Canada’s next leaders of pharmacy departments in hospitals, executive directors of family health teams, educators in pharmacy schools, and more.

The two-year program consists of:

  • Eight one-term (0.50 unit weight) graduate level courses; 6 required and 2 electives*
  • 750 hours of clinical experiences involving direct-patient care in one or more health care settings
  • Master's Research Paper
  • Fundamentals of University Teaching workshop series
  • Leadership workshops
  • Academic Integrity Workshop and Graduate Academic Integrity Module (Graduate AIM)

 *Students are required to be on site at the School for 8 months while they complete their coursework. The clinical experience and research components of the degree may be completed off site.


The School of Pharmacy launched its new Masters of Pharmacy in Advanced Clinical Practice program in early 2020. Physical distancing, virtual delivery of coursework, travel restrictions and other measures to mitigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 on the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff have necessitated the delay of the program to Fall 2021. Core courses will be offered online in the fall 2021 term.
