Ensuring Excellence in Undergraduate Education

Experiential learning that integrates theory and practice is the cornerstone of the Pharmacy and Nutrition programs. The Pharmacy program has 25 weeks in total in a community pharmacy, hospital, and an additional practice site. The Nutrition program now includes 37 weeks on internship that involves diverse clinical rotations in Canada. It is essential to the continuation of study for many of our students that they receive some form of financial aid. Our goal is to ensure that every student in financial need receives help.

The Nutrition Resource and Volunteer Centre (NRVC) is dedicated to enhancing nutritional resources and learning opportunities for the general public, dietitians, nutritionists, other health care professionals and Nutrition students. The Saskatchewan Drug Information Service (SDIS) has two components that benefit the community. The first is the Consumer Drug Information Line, which is available to members of the public and provides direct information about medications. The second component is the Healthcare Professional Drug Information service, which provides services for pharmacists, physicians and other health care professions throughout Saskatchewan.
