Your Time and Energy Have Exponential Benefits

Precepting

Preceptors play an integral role in the education of British Columbia's pharmacists. Our preceptors provide incredible value to our program by providing our students with the opportunity to put their learning into practice in a clinical setting—and we value the support and time of our preceptors tremendously. What's in it for you? Shaping the next generation, advancing the practice of pharmacy, and sharing in the new knowledge and ideas our students carry with them. Learn more through the Office of Experiential Education.

 
Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)

Help us choose the next class of pharmacists. Each year the Faculty receives hundreds of applications to the program. Over the course of two days in early summer, prospective students participate in a series of mini interviews where they are given scenarios to assess non-academic qualities that will help them be successful as students and as future health care practitioners. Learn more by contacting the Office of Student Services undergrad.pharm@ubc.ca.

 
Mentoring and Volunteering

Every year presents numerous opportunities for our alumni to help out. From individual mentors for our students to cloakers for the White Coat Ceremony to participants in Career Avenues to guest lecturers, the participation of our alumni enriches our students' education. To learn more about mentoring and volunteer opportunities and how you can become involved, please contact our alumni relations manager. 

 
Donating

With our donors' generous support, our students can pursue their dreams of becoming pharmacists. Your support also empowers UBC Pharm Sci to continue its ground-breaking work in pharmacy and pharmaceutical science research.

If you'd like to learn more about how your donation can help, please contact Charlotte Lawson, director of Development & Alumni Engagement at charlotte.lawson@ubc.ca or (604) 822-1328. You can also make a donation online.
