Your pharmacist is a valuable member of your personal healthcare team. Pharmacists that are registered and licensed with the Saskatchewan College of Pharmacists have met rigorous requirements to ensure they have the knowledge, skill and professional judgment necessary to provide you with quality pharmacy care.
Prior to licensing, your pharmacist has:
- Undertaken at least four to five years of university-level pharmacy education;
- Received education and training in all aspects of medication therapy management and the principles of providing quality pharmaceutical care including patient counseling;
- Qualified to counsel patients in either English or French; and
- Successfully completed provincial and national examinations demonstrating competence in pharmacy practice and the application of pharmacy laws and standards of practice.
