Rotations are clinical placements in the final year Waterloo Pharmacy program. Students complete three placements in hospitals, community pharmacies, and health centres in one of fourteen regions across Ontario.
This year, long-time supporters of the School Dr. Frank and Julianna Wong created an award to support students on rotation. It was received by three students: Janhavi Malhotra is completing her rotation in the Niagara Region, Rui Su in the Sudbury Region, and Tharsika Sinnathamby in the Ottawa Region.
This fall, the School of Pharmacy was back on the road making trips to Sudbury and Windsor. The visits are part of the 10th Anniversary Regional Tour which has members of the School’s leadership meeting with preceptors, co-op employers, alumni, and stakeholders across the provinces.
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.
