Strategic Planning


The scope of practice for pharmacists in Alberta is the broadest in the world.

Many services that once required an appointment with a family doctor can now be provided by an Albertan pharmacist, including provision of health advice, precision medicine, disease screening, injections and vaccinations, prescriptions and referrals.

In Alberta, pharmacy is much more than dispensing pills. Our faculty is positioned to serve a transformative role with research and education that will drive policy decisions, implementation, and support for this integral new approach to healthcare as we educate future pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists.

Our Faculty excels in transferring its research to the marketplace.

Research has always been the strength of the faculty. Our academic staff's research interests are of the most diverse on campus.
