Term Clinical Pharmacist Positions Available

Correctional Services of Canada’s Pacific Regional Pharmacy requires two TERM Clinical Pharmacists at our pharmacy in Abbotsford, B.C..  Approximately 50 minutes from Vancouver. We are a federal government operated pharmacy.  

The clinical pharmacist will be responsible for performing Drug Utilization Reviews, Discharge Medication Reviews, counseling patients in-person as well as using tele-medicine technology on various aspects of their medications, performing drug educational in-services to nurses and other health services staff, performing prescription drug and OTC drug in-services to our patients, managing our pharmacy drug newsletter (the PharmaGram).  We also have an annual pharmacy education fair for patients in which the clinical pharmacist will assist in. In addition, we are moving to further expand our clinical services in other areas.

Our Regional Pharmacy is a licensed CCHSA accredited hospital pharmacy.   We service the entire Pacific Region’s federal correctional penitentiaries comprising a population of 2100 at 12 different facilities and 1 medical hospital.  

This is an exciting and secure employment opportunity that is very much different than most other pharmacy practices.  Our sole goal is optimizing patent care as pharmacists by interacting directly with the patients as well as contributing to and being an integral part of the health care team.  

Our pharmacy operates from Mondays to Fridays from 0745-1545 hours. We are closed on statutory holidays and weekends.

4th year students currently in pharmacy at UBC are welcome and encouraged to apply.  We realize that you will not become licensed until the summer.  Your enthusiasm and vibrance as new grads will complement our existing pharmacy team well.  The position will also provide you with valuable work experience.
