Welcome from the Dean
The School of Pharmacy at Memorial University is small, but we are mighty.
With an annual cohort of just 40 students, our detailed instruction arms our graduates with the knowledge and skills they require to provide an informed, effective and compassionate pharmacy practice. Our firm-yet-friendly educators often remain a part of our graduates’ professional network far beyond the day they cross the stage at convocation. Our Structured Practice Experience (SPE) program allows students to apply their university-gained knowledge and training in a practice environment – and many of the program’s preceptors are School of Pharmacy alumni who are eager to give back because of the impact their own preceptors had on their careers.
Our connections with local and national pharmacy organizations enhance our students’ success and advancement. We maintain longstanding relationships with several pharmacy associations and boards, all of who provide support for our program, and hold tremendous faith in and respect for it.
Our faculty and graduate students are passionate about research that will eventually improve and enhance our population’s health and wellbeing. We are committed to providing opportunities for undergraduate students to also gain research experience that will advance pharmacy practice.
Our staff works tirelessly to provide impeccable service and information to our students and stakeholders.
The symbiotic relationship between teaching, research, and community practice is what will ultimately advance our profession and provide excellence in patient care.
This is a crucial time for the pharmacy profession. In many ways, we are at a turning point. In consideration of the expanding roles and responsibilities a pharmacist will continue to undertake, the School of Pharmacy is looking towards the future - we will offer an entry-to-practice level Pharm D. program by 2017.
I am proud to serve as dean of Memorial University’s School of Pharmacy, and I am excited about the upcoming years. I welcome you to explore our small-but-mighty school, as we continue to lead innovative patient care through teaching, research and practice.
