Congratulations on completing pharmacy school!
The spring of 2019 marks the graduation of the first Entry-to-Practice PharmD students from UBC. It really is the first step in charting a new frontier for the profession of community pharmacists. And like all explorers charting new frontiers, it is not possible to clearly know what lies ahead or where the destination will end. And that’s okay. Because any good journey involves some surprises along the way.
As you start the next stage of your career, the BC Pharmacy Association will play a vital role in helping you build your career. From personal professional liability insurance to job postings to tools and resources to professional development, the BC Pharmacy Association is here to help.
Join 3,200 practicing pharmacists and 900 pharmacies across the province as a BCPhA member.
