Future MSc & PhD students

The School of Pharmacy was designed to be different. Situated in the Kitchener Innovation District, the School of Pharmacy is Canada’s most innovative pharmacy school; we develop pharmacists, scientists, and healthcare leaders through a strategic integration of experiential learning, impact-driven research, entrepreneurship, teaching and academic excellence.

Born out of collaborative partnerships and rooted in community, we build connections, solve real-world challenges, and actively engage the diverse communities we serve.

Students in our MSc and PhD programs have the opportunity to learn the latest research methods in our state-of-the-art facilities, and benefit from the mentorship of faculty members who are leading change for a healthier world by engaging in exciting new research to address questions that span fields ranging from cellular physiology, to drug development and delivery, to clinical studies investigating how to optimize medication use in various patient populations.

Want to become a pharmacist?

Our graduate programs do not qualify graduates to practice Pharmacy in Canada.

  • If you are not a pharmacist and wish to become one, then our four-year professional program leading to an entry-to-practice Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) degree is for you.
  • If you are an internationally trained pharmacist, you can find out how to have your international credentials recognized by contacting the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada (PEBC).
