Intern Programs (ITP/IFP) – Master of Pharmacy / Graduate Certificate of Pharmacy Practice

Intern pharmacists must complete an intern training program as part of the requirements of the pharmacy intern year. The Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences offers an intern training program as part of the Master of Pharmacy and as part of the Graduate Certificate of Pharmacy Practice (P4001).

If you are enrolled in the Master of Pharmacy you must complete the Intern Training Program (ITP) (PHR5061 Applied pharmacy practice 1 and PHR5062 Applied pharmacy practice 2) and the Intern Foundation Program (IFP) (PHR5161 Foundation practice 1 and PHR5161 Foundation practice 2) to meet the requirements of the Master of Pharmacy.

If you are enrolled in the Graduate Certificate of Pharmacy Practice (P4001), you may elect to complete the ITP only or may choose to:

  • combine the ITP (12 credit points) with the IFP (12 credit points) during your internship to complete the Graduate Certificate of Pharmacy Practice in 1 year; or
  • undertake further study after your internship in specific areas of practice, by completing elective units (12 credit points) which cover topics in pharmacy practice, clinical pharmacy, economics and wound care.

The ITP units (PHR5061 Applied pharmacy practice 1 and PHR5062 Applied pharmacy practice 2) are offered in teaching periods with non-standard unit discontinuation dates. Please refer to the non-standard unit discontinuation dates website for details.
