Training Site for Future Pharmacists

Each year, more than 200 students graduate from the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and become licensed pharmacists. We have been active clinical instructors with UBC Pharm Sci since 2013 and find that the experience is as vital for us as it is for the students. We love being able to guide students in applying their classroom learning to real-world clinical practice. Our students assist with medication therapy management, counsel about medications, provide injections, and offer programs that benefit our patients. We also benefit from their up-to-date clinical and research skills. Please introduce yourselves to our students, join us in welcoming them to our pharmacy, and ask them questions related to your health care. They have a lot of knowledge to share.
