Independent Night brings together alumni and pharmacy owners from independent pharmacies from across the province to share their advice, experiences, job opportunities and more with pharmacy students and new grads. You won't want to miss out on this networking event!

Thanks to a partnership between alumna Aileen Jang (BSc Pharm 1983), the Pharmacy Alumni Association and the Faculty of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, Independent Night 2021 will be taking place virutally on the evening of June 3, 2021.

Although we cannot meet in person, Independent Night with be as interactive and fun as usual, using Zoom breakout rooms to allow for multiple networking conversations throughout the night with pharmacy owners from across the province, including many that will be looking to hire.

Students will get a chance to ask questions to each of the hosts in an intimate online setting, and the hosts will have the opportunity to tell students more about their practices.

We are still working out the details, but Save the Date and stay tuned for more info!
