Why I love my program

Pharmacy is an amazing collection of individuals who have a passion for caring for other people. It makes for an awesome, tight-knit community of people who help each other succeed. I also love how the co-op program gives us an opportunity to gain experience and apply the knowledge that we’re learning. Plus, it helps that I love the class content!

Why University of Waterloo?

I chose the University of Waterloo because they have the only co-op pharmacy program in Canada. I did my undergraduate studies in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Waterloo as well and loved the huge variety of extracurricular activities I could be part of as well as the opportunities for professional development.
