All students who are interested in pursuing graduate studies in Pharmacy at the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy must secure the support of a research supervisor if they are to be admitted into our program. Admission is competitive. With that, while it is not a requirement, prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to review our research supervisor profiles and contact the individual with whom they wish to work, to see if that supervisor has the research funding and resources, as well as the interest, to consider for admission to their research group.
