UBC Pharm Sci understands that people are at the forefront of pharmacy's development. We attract and develop the best by supporting a culture of innovation, diversity, leadership, and excellence in research and pharmacy practice.


Having opportunities to learn from practicing pharmacists is an important part of the student experience at UBC Pharm Sci. These pharmacists are able to share their knowledge with learners while simultaneously supplementing their own growth and development as a pharmacy professional. We are looking for pharmacists from a wide range of pharmacy backgrounds to teach in the Entry-to-Practice PharmD program at UBC.
