Pharmacy Education Site

Pharmacy Education Site

A pharmacy education site is licensed solely for the purpose of pharmacy education and pharmacy services are not provided to any person.

Eligibility Criteria
  1. The pharmacy education site must be located in an educational institution where pharmacy education is offered.
  2. The pharmacy education site must not be open to the public seeking pharmacy services. 
  3. The pharmacy education site may store Schedule I, II and II drugs, but not any controlled drug substances.
Application Process

 

 

  1. Apply for a New Pharmacy Education Site Licence

    Submit the following documents to the College and allow 10 business days for processing:

    1. Application for New Pharmacy Education Site Licence.

     

    Upon approval of the new pharmacy education site application by the College, an email notification will be sent to the pharmacy manager for scheduling an on-site pre-opening review at the pharmacy education site, if required, within 20 business days prior to the opening date.

    Notify the College at licensure@bcpharmacists.org should there be a change in the proposed opening date that was originally indicated in your Application for New Pharmacy Education Site Licence to avoid delays in the next phase of the process.

  2. Pre-Opening Inspection

    A College inspector will conduct a scheduled pre-opening inspection at the pharmacy education site, if required.

    Note: A subsequent visit will be required if requirements are not met, which may delay the opening of the new pharmacy.

Once all the above documents are complete and all requirements are met, the pharmacy manager will be notified by email when the pharmacy education site is authorized to open and a pharmacy education site licence will be issued.

A pharmacy education site licence is valid for 12 months and must be renewed through eServices annually before the expiry date. An email notification will be sent to the pharmacy manager approximately 6 weeks before the pharmacy licence expires. Ensure that your pharmacy manager’s email contact information on eServices is always up-to-date.
