Residency vs Internship - What's the difference?

Internship is a period of training during which a pharmacy student intern gains the practical experience required for licensure to practice pharmacy. Canada’s Pharmacy Regulatory Authorities regulate internships. Internship requirements vary from province to province. Residency candidates should consult the regulatory authority in the province of interest for further information.

Residency is a period of training during which an individual gains the practical experience required for advanced practice of pharmacy. The Canadian Hospital Pharmacy Residency Board sets Accreditation Standards for residency training. Although a residency does not, by itself, qualify an individual for licensure, in most jurisdictions an internship can be completed in conjunction with a Residency Program.
