About Us

We acknowledge the UBC Pharmacists Clinic is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueum people. We recognize and respect that we have a shared responsibility to ensure that our practice accurately reflects Indigenous cultures, histories, and health, where appropriate.

Pharmacists are experts in how medications work for people, including their dosages, side effects, and interactions with other medications. At the UBC Pharmacists Clinic, our pharmacist clinicians use their specialized knowledge and training to offer a range of healthcare services, including comprehensive medication management (CMM), minor ailment and contraceptive services, and administration of injections.

CMM is an in-depth service where the pharmacist works closely with a patient and their care team to optimize medication use and patient health outcomes. CMM is evidence-based, collaborative and ensures the patient understands and is involved in their care decisions.

More about our services is provided in the Patients section.

Please note we do not offer prescription-filling services.
