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.

    Do you take three or more medications regularly? Do you feel like your medications aren’t working or that you may be experiencing side effects? Do you have diabetes? A MedsCheck with your pharmacist may be for you.
