Undergraduate Program
For High School Students
2017-18 B.Sc. Program For New Applicants

Career Information for High School Students

A career in pharmacy can include many different work venues mostly in the community but also in hospital, pharmaceutical industry, health science research, government, and educational environments. Wherever a pharmacist works, he or she requires a profound knowledge concerning all aspects of medications and also excellent interpersonal skills. A pharmacist is always an important member of the health care delivery team in Canada.

Over the past few years, we have provided information about our program to interested high school students during both the Information Days and Evening of Excellence events sponsored by the University of Manitoba. The Information Days are held in February of each year for the Senior 3 and 4 high school students of Manitoba who have the opportunity to visit the university and to receive information about all undergraduate programs at the University of Manitoba.
