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.

    There are over half a million Canadians living with dementia. Treatment of this devastating disorder is challenging as there are no drugs available to cure it. Developing a new drug, running clinical trials, and acquiring approval from regulatory agencies is expensive and time-consuming: the process can take decades and cost upwards of 4 billion dollars.
