Grand River Hospital and the University of Waterloo School of Pharmacy hosted an appreciation reception yesterday at GRH in celebration and acknowledgement of the teaching and research partnership between the two organizations.
GRH is a strong supporter of the university’s pharmacy programs. For every term since the fall of 2008, GRH’s pharmacy program has accepted between one and 10 students to gain clinical experience in a hospital setting. GRH has offered a total of 105 co-op student positions in the past eight years.
This partnership is a mutually beneficial relationship for both the hospital and the university. GRH provides an engaging atmosphere with experienced team of pharmacists to mentor and train students, while the students bring a renewed energy and eagerness to learn.
GRH looks forward to continuing this partnership in the future and continuing to develop future health care professionals.
