Currently, to be admitted into the two-year membership programme, the candidate must have passed or be exempted from the primary examination of the Ghana College of Pharmacists and admitted through an interview process.
The purpose of this policy is to outline the principles that apply to candidates seeking exemption from the primaries programme. For the partial fulfillment of membership programme requirements, it is recommended that pharmacists with relevant prior post-graduate qualifications be allowed to go directly into residency without going through the 1-year primaries programme.
The exemption will only be awarded when the Academic Board is completely satisfied that the knowledge gained from the prior postgraduate qualification is equivalent to the level of knowledge at the primaries level.
The Admissions Committee after a thorough assessment will submit a recommendation for exemption to the Rector for admission.

Please Note: This list is not exhaustive as the ultimate decision lies with the admissions committee.
Our minimum admission requirements are as follows:
Specialist pharmacists are needed across all areas of pharmacy, including drug production, public health, quality assurance in pharmaceutical manufacturing, community practice and pharmacy administration. In view of this, the College has received approval to waive the requirement for post-qualification experience for both Bachelor of Pharmacy and Doctor of Pharmacy first degree holders.
The exemption will only be awarded when the Academic Board is completely satisfied that the desired area of specialization is an area which is lacking specialist pharmacists.
