UMontréal receives $3M boost to advance pharmacy practices


The Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Pharmacy has received a $3M donation from Pharmaprix to advance pharmacy practices in Quebec. Specifically, this funding will be used to support the construction of a new pharmacy simulation and virtual reality center to help train UMontréal pharmacy students through immersive learning. The donation will also contribute to the creation of a scholarship fund to support local and diverse learners. “Quebec’s healthcare system is called upon to evolve to better meet the population’s new needs, and thanks to this donation from Pharmaprix, our Faculty of Pharmacy will be able to keep pace with this evolution,” said UMontréal Rector Daniel Jutras.
