The University of Saskatchewan is nestled on 981 hectares of land on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The U of S opened its doors in 1907, two years after the Province of Saskatchewan was formed. It is home to 16,500 undergraduate and 3,687  graduate students in over 100 areas of study. 
U of S highlights
  • the Canadian Light Source synchrotron is the only third-generation synchrotron in Canada
  • the U of S has three research farms
  • students from over 100 countries
  • home for the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization and International Vaccine Centre’s containment level 3 facility
The College of Pharmacy and Nutrition began as the School of Pharmacy in the College of Arts and Science at the University of Saskatchewan in 1913. In 1921 the School became the College of Pharmacy and in 1994 the College changed its name to the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition, after the establishment of the Division of Nutrition and Dietetics. 
The College’s Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy is a four-year undergraduate program that is accredited by the Canadian Council for Accreditation of Pharmacy Programs. The program admits 90 students each year and provides a high quality, challenging education with significant clinical practice experience, increased integration and application of material throughout. Our four-year accredited program includes Structured Practice Experience Program (SPEP) components through each year of study that comprise 25 weeks of professional rotations at hospitals, community pharmacies, specialty sites and international placements. 
Our graduate studies and research programs have attracted world-class students and faculty. Our researchers attract approximately $1.5 million annually in research grants and contracts for research into nanotechnology, oncology, drug discovery and development, primary care, pharmacoepidemiology, and pharmacy management. The College’s research thrives on strong individual and collaborative research programs and a diversity of research expertise. 
The College is currently situated in the historic Thorvaldson Building on the U of S campus and will be moving into the new Health Sciences building starting in late 2012. This building will bring together all of the University of Saskatchewan’s health science schools and disciplines into one facility. The state-of-the-art facility will be a leading integrated facility that supports interdisciplinary cooperation between students and faculty in every aspect of health science education and research. The building will have a conceptualized and expanded health sciences library, shared research labs and offices, a high fidelity simulation clinical learning resource centre, a 500-seat lecture theatre and a new Pharmacy Practice Skills Lab.
