UBC Pharmaceutical Industry and Health Technology (PITECH)

Overview of the Club

PITECH was co-founded by a group of PharmD students with the vision of introducing students to careers in industrial pharmacy and raising awareness about the role of technology in pharmacy. Specifically, we aim to create mentorship, internship, research, and networking opportunities for PharmD students in the industrial pharmacy and health technology fields. By offering PharmD students an avenue for creativity and innovation in these fields, we hope to encourage their involvement in practice settings beyond clinical and community.

Highlights or Club Initiatives
