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 serves a transformative role with research and education that drives policy decisions, implementation, and support for an integral new approach to healthcare as we educate future pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists.
