Welcome to the School of Pharmacy

The School of Pharmacy at the University of Waterloo is the first new pharmacy school in Canada in 20 years and housed in a state-of-the-art education and research building on the Health Sciences Campus in downtown Kitchener. 

We offer an innovative undergraduate pharmacy curriculum that integrates foundational knowledge in the biomedical and pharmaceutical sciences with applied skills in the clinical, behavioural and social sciences to prepare our graduates to serve as medication therapy experts.

  3. Aug. 28, 2018Elaine Lillie retires from Waterloo Pharmacy after over 10 years of service

    When Elaine Lillie first joined Waterloo Pharmacy in 2007, the School had no building, no curriculum, and no students. She was replying to an advertisement in the Waterloo Region Record. The job: communications instructor. The requirements: educational experience and a background in pharmacy.

    “I was intrigued by a professional school that had the insight to understand that it needed focus on communication, that communication is the key that grants patients access to care providers’ knowledge,” says Elaine. “I wanted to meet these people and hoped I convince them to let me be a part of the team.”
