The Student Success Fund supports students interested in attending professional conferences throughout the year, like Professional Development Week and the Ontario Pharmacist Association’s conference as well as other professional development opportunities.

"Pharmacy profession conferences have provided our 480 PharmD students with a unique and practical learning experience that complements the learning we experience in the classroom," says President of the Society of Pharmacy Students, Naushin Hooda “These conferences are an incredible opportunity to network with professionals and other students, learn clinical and business-related lessons from experienced pharmacists, and to instill a sense of enthusiasm and excitement about the pharmacy profession.”

Thank you to our generous sponsors, Platinum sponsor McKesson ,Gold sponsors Teva and Apotex  and Silver and Bronze sponsors along with all attendees for making the day such a success.
