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.

    “At work, I have been spat on, splattered with hot coffee, had death threats, and called every horrible insult you can think of. In my line of work, I cannot take these things personally. My patients lead a hard life, and on the street that is how things are dealt with.”
