CAPSI promotes and represents the interests of Canadian pharmacy students. We also serve to prepare students as professionals that are ready and willing to provide the best health care possible within pharmacy??s realm of expertise. We encourage our members to enhance the profession of pharmacy by providing them with several competitions and events to develop their skills.
Local Events for the Year
CAPSI gets you great discounts on textbooks! Through the UPS Summer Mail Out you can order Dipiro’s Pharmacotherapy: A Pathophysiologic Approach Text book/ Handbook and Ansel’s Pharmaceutical Calculation Textbook.
Ice Cream Social
To welcome the incoming pharmacy class CAPSI holds an Ice Cream Social during Phrosh. Students also receive CAPSI backpacks and agendas to get them ready for school!
Throughout the year CAPSI hosts a variety of competitions for students to develop and show case their skills. These include the Compounding, Patient Counselling and Over The Counter competitions. The winners on the local level then go on to represent UofT at the National level.
Pharmacy Awareness Week
Every year during March the Undergraduate Pharmacy Society (UPS) and CAPSI bring students a variety of events and activities to support PAM. Most importantly, we create opportunities for students to advocate for the pharmacy profession both on campus and in the community.
