Accreditation Services

UBC CPPD uses a comprehensive set of standards and guidelines developed by the Canadian Council of Continuing Education in Pharmacy (CCCEP) to accredit continuing pharmacy education programs (CPE). Program accreditation provides assurance to pharmacy professionals that a program has been reviewed for quality education, relevance to practice and freedom from bias.  

UBC CPPD provides CPE program accreditation "ONLY" for the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.  Applicants should allow 4-6 weeks for the processing of an accreditation request.  Fast Track Accreditation (less than 7 working days) may be available upon request.  Applicants should contact Ying Gu by e-mail at or by telephone at 604-827-3108 for Accreditation Request Forms, Documents and further information.

All other CPE program providers in the province of British Columbia should contact CCCEP at for accreditation of their programs.
