UBC Pharmacy Women’s Health Club (PWHC)

Overview of the Club

UBC Pharmacy Women’s Health Club (PWHC) is aimed at promoting student pharmacists as advocates for women’s health. As the scope of pharmacists continues to expand, it is critical to have practice ready for pharmacists who are able to provide women with care that is catered to their needs and preferences. The club will host various events throughout the academic year to highlight Women in Pharmacy including patient journeys, women in leadership roles as well as local organizations aimed to improve outcomes for women’s health. In doing so, the student body will be more prepared to provide optimal care for patients during their rotations as well as future practice.
