Types of Pharmacy Residencies

Students looking to gain practical experience as part of their pharmacy education can take advantage of two types of residency programs through the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy.

Hospital Pharmacy Residency

Hospital Pharmacy residencies in Ontario are co-ordinated by the Pharmacy Residency Forum of Ontario (PRFO). The accredited residency programmes follow the standards and guidelines of the Canadian Pharmacy Residency Board (CPRB). Individual programs are affiliated with one of the academic pharmacy programs in Ontario, including the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. The Residency is a one year programme for pharmacy graduates, starting between July and September. 

To apply for a hospital residency, please visit the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists’ site.

Industrial Pharmacy Residency Program

The Industrial Pharmacy Residency Program (IPRP) is administered by the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Toronto, in cooperation with participating Pharmaceutical Companies as listed below. The one-year specialty residencies provide skills and experience focused within the stated specialty area. This is an educational residency program for graduates from a recognized Pharmacy degree program; it is not an application for a position with a pharmaceutical company.

Applications for 2020-21 are now closed.

New applications for 2021-22 will be accepted in September 2020.
