PEBC assessors needed

February 8, 2011

The Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC) invites interested pharmacists to consider participating as an assessor for the PEBC Qualifying Examination – Part II (OSCE). The national exam will be held on Sunday May 29, 2011 at sites in both Edmonton and Calgary.


Job description and application details:

To qualify you must:

  • have been licensed in Canada for at least 3 years,
  • currently be a member in good standing, and
  • be providing or directly supervising patient care services, including dispensing, clinical and drug information services.

Assessors will be involved in the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) used to evaluate candidates.

Preceptors in the practice setting (e.g., for structured practical training, internship and clerkship programs) and occasional teaching assistants/lab facilitators in years 1 and 2 of the academic program would normally qualify as assessors.

Interested pharmacists outside of Edmonton and Calgary are welcome to apply as assessors. Some travel expenses may be paid to out-of-town assessors.

Information about the examination, guidelines for the selection of assessors, as well as an assessor interest survey and response form can be found on the PEBC website.
