Dear faculty, staff and students,

It’s hard to believe we are closing out the last week of May 2020. We’ve overcome some incredible challenges these last few months and continue to work together on those that lay ahead.

Earlier today we announced that Natalie Crown, Assistant Professor, Teaching Stream has accepted an interim role as Assistant Director, PharmD Program.  In this new role Natalie will work with the Director to provide leadership and strategic direction for the ongoing development, organization, delivery, assessment and resources for the PharmD Program. This position will make recommendations for the ongoing implementation of the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy's academic plan priorities within the PharmD Program and serves on the Dean’s Leadership Committee. 

Convocation 2020: #UoftGrad20

Next week we will celebrate our Class of 2020 grads at U of T’s virtual Convocation. Now more than ever, the expertise of our graduates is needed to care for patients, build new diagnostic and treatment tools, and re-envision the delivery of healthcare at all levels.

Please see this video from President Meric Gertler, inviting graduating students, and their families and friends, to watch the virtual convocation ceremony which will be made available for viewing starting June 2 at 12:00 p.m. on the Convocation Hub, and also on the official U of T Facebook page

A reminder to also follow and engage with our Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy social media channels for convocation stories from our community.
