University of Manitoba, College of Pharmacy Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience
In the final year of the PharmD program at the University of Manitoba (U of M) Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Pharmacy students transition to an ‘intern’ status to complete their Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) rotations and internship. Becoming an intern allows students to perform all areas of pharmacy practice while under the supervision of an undergraduate preceptor. The U of M College of Pharmacy assigns CPhM-approved undergraduate preceptors to interns.
U of M College of Pharmacy students will receive an email from CPhM advising them to apply for intern status using the University of Manitoba Intern Application before beginning their APPE and internship in fourth year.
Please see the Pharmacy Student and Intern Rotations Resource for additional information.
If you are a graduate from a Canadian province other than Manitoba and want to complete your internship in Manitoba, please contact the College office.
What happens when I finish my APPE and internship?
Students who successfully complete the APPE and meet all of the graduation requirements from the PharmD program the U of M Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Pharmacy, can apply to become a post-graduate intern, if they wish. Interns must be registered for the next available sitting of the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada Qualifying Examination, and can remain as a postgraduate intern until the results are available. Practicing as a post-graduate intern allows graduates to continue practicing to the full scope of an intern under supervision of a CPhM-approved preceptor until they meet the registration and licensing requirements of a pharmacist.
Alternatively, students may choose to forgo a post-graduate internship, but they may only perform the tasks of a pharmacy assistant (‘other person’ under the Pharmaceutical Regulation) until they meet the registration and licensing requirements.
More information on the optional post-graduate internship will be made available in the coming months.
