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.

    The 10th Anniversary Regional Tour continues as the School of Pharmacy visits Niagara Falls

    This week a team from Waterloo Pharmacy hosted a reception and presentation for the pharmacy community in Niagara Falls. The event was the second stop on the School’s Regional Tour, an event which celebrates the School’s 10th anniversary by saying thank you to pharmacists who support the School throughout the province. It brought together preceptors, co-op supervisors, alumni, and students who work in and around the Niagara and Hamilton regions.

    Co-op is what makes Waterloo Pharmacy unique: we’re the only co-operative education pharmacy school in Canada. Offering a co-op program is challenging and requires the support of the pharmacist community all across the country. Without employers to consistently hire students and offer invaluable learning opportunities, our program would not be possible.
