The UBC Pharmacists Clinic team works with you to get the best possible results from the medications you take. We welcome self-referrals from people with Canadian addresses, with preference given to residents of British Columbia. 

We're Here to Help

Our expert pharmacists work with you to make sure you are getting the most out of your medications. The pharmacist listens to your health concerns, helps you solve medication problems and works together with your family doctor, nurse practitioner and other care team members to make sure each medication you take is effective, safe and well-tolerated. Our service is generally provided at no cost to you. 

Please note we are not a medical or urgent care clinic, and we do not offer prescription-filling services. If you need urgent help, call 9-1-1 or contact your nearest medical clinic. If you need to purchase medication or have a prescription filled, contact your nearest pharmacy.
