Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences opens new Pharmacists Clinic

On April 28, 2014, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences officially opened the Pharmacists Clinic, Canada’s first university-affiliated, licensed, pharmacist-led patient care clinic.

Located in mezzanine level of the Pharmaceutical Sciences Building, the 1,470-square-foot space has five consultation rooms equipped with state-of-the-art point of care equipment and software, including blood pressure monitors and access to electronic health care information through Excelleris. Services provided to patients who come to the clinic by physician or self-referral include comprehensive medication reviews and vaccinations.

“The Pharmacists Clinic represents a bold step forward in the way we train pharmacists and our commitment to innovation in pharmacy education, research and practice,” says Dr. Michael Coughtrie, professor and dean, UBC Pharmaceutical Sciences. For more information, click here.
