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.
On June 13, Waterloo Pharmacy instructor Elaine Lillie was recognized with the Association of Faculties of Pharmacies of Canada (AFPC) National Award for Excellence in Education. Lillie is Waterloo Pharmacy’s Director of Interprofessional Education and Curriculum Development and has been an instructor in the program since the School opened in 2008.
On June 13, Waterloo Pharmacy PhD candidate Paul Malik was recognized with an award at the Association of Faculties of Pharmacy of Canada (AFPC) conference. Malik received the AFPC/Merck Canada Inc. Post Graduate Pharmacy Fellowship Award which aims to promote the pursuit of research careers among pharmacy and graduate students.
