About the MAC

The Medication Assessment Centre (MAC) is a pharmacist-led, patient-centered service through the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition at the University of Saskatchewan. The MAC’s goal is to optimize your health through improved medication use and side effect management. The MAC is also a teaching facility which is focused on enhancing the learning of students, as well as practicing pharmacists, in the area of medication management.

A MAC pharmacist can do many things to improve your health and increase your understanding of both your medication and medical conditions. In your first appointment at the MAC, the pharmacist will collect a detailed history regarding current and past medication use as well as inquire about any concerns or questions that you may have about your health or medications. The following appointments with you are used to discuss the pharmacist’s suggestions as well as to collect further information. The pharmacist will always discuss any recommendations with you before contacting your primary provider. 

Our Vision:

To demonstrate national leadership in the education of health professionals while optimizing the health of our community. 

Our Mission:

To provide students and practicing pharmacists with an enriched clinical environment in which to refine their skills, and to enhance patient health through empowerment, medication optimization, and collaboration with health care teams.
