December 2, 2012 (Toronto) – PharmAchieve the largest and leader provider of preparatory courses for the PEBC Exams today announced that live, interactive lectures for its MCQ classes, taught by a team of three university professors with years of clinical experience led by Mark McIntyre, PharmD. The instruction will be available both online and in a classroom.

Says PharmAchieve CEO Hooman Katirai, “During our last class, we noticed that many students moved from as far away as Vancouver would fly to Toronto just to attend our classes. We understand the inconvenience that such travel can bring and as a result developed the technology to bring online student a first class experience where they could attend the same class as the students in the physical classroom."

To provide a seamless online experience, the instructor wears a microphone and uses a special whiteboard so that whatever is written is projected simultaneously in the classroom and online. Online students can also submit question during live lectures and in fact have been found to submit more questions than those in the classroom.

  • Course notes aligned to all PEBC competencies
  • Up-to-date readings, guidelines, case work-ups, and drug charts
