Jurisprudence Examination

The Jurisprudence Examination (JP Exam) is a mandatory step to licensure in Manitoba.

For Pharmacists

The Jurisprudence Examination (JP Exam) for pharmacists is held once per month at the College of Pharmacists of Manitoba office. You can make an appointment to write the exam by contacting the College Registration Officer by email at brobinson@cphm.ca .

If you are a Canadian graduate, you can write the JP Exam after the Registrar approves your registration application and supporting documents.

If you are an international pharmacy graduate (and Manitoba is your entry-to-practice province) you can write the JP Exam only after you have completed a minimum of 200 hours of your internship.

It is a closed-book exam that you have three hours to complete. You must receive a minimum grade of 70 per cent to pass the exam.

Pharmacists who pass the JP Exam may choose to claim their study time as accredited learning toward the professional development requirement. Studying for the JP Exam is accredited for a maximum of 10 CEU (1 hour of study time is equivalent to 1 CEU). To record these CEUs in your professional development log, you must download the Statement of Participation, complete the appropriate information, and retain it for your records.
