Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD)

The College of Pharmacy and Nutrition will launch a Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) four-year program in fall 2017 to replace the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy as the first professional degree required to practice as a licensed pharmacist. Candidates for admission must have completed 60 credit units (or equivalent) by April 30 of the year admission is desired.  Students are able to complete the first year (30 credit units) at Cumberland College.

The following courses (or equivalent) should be included in the 60 credit units:

Bachelor of Science in Nutrition

The B.Sc. (Nutrition) program involves an exciting and unique structure and a partnership with the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region (RQHR) and Saskatoon Health Region (SHR). One year of pre-Nutrition studies is required, after which students may apply to enter the B.Sc. (Nutr.).  The pre-Nutrition year is available at Cumberland College.

At the University of Saskatchewan, the professional experiences that were previously included in postgraduate dietetic internship (which is still the case for many of the Nutrition programs in other parts of Canada) are now incorporated within the degree.

Applicants require a minimum of one year (30 credit units) of university training, a “pre-Nutrition year”, prior to April 30 of the year of application, to be considered for admission.

Pre-Nutrition Year – the following courses or equivalents:

  • Biology 120.3 (The Nature of Life) and Biology 121.3 (The Diversity of Life)
  • Chemistry 112.3 (General Chemistry I)
  • Chemistry 250.3 (Organic Chemistry I)

  • Psychology 120.3 and 121.3 or Sociology 111.3 and 112.3 
  • 6 cu electives*
