Professionals providing students with rewarding patient care rotations
The University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy is Canada’s newest pharmacy school, but its roots in innovative experience-based education are firmly established.
It began with the Waterloo Pharmacy co-operative education program, the first and only co-op pharmacy program in Canada, which provides students with 48 weeks of practice-based education to connect what’s taught in the classroom with real-world experiences.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
