  1. Terrible title. Please forgive.

    I'm not sure where is the appropriate location for this post.  

    UBC pharmacy student here, looking to find out if in other universities if there is good communication between faculties for professional health science students.  For example, at UBC pharmacy we have facebook groups for each year and I'm probing to see how to connect the different faculty department student's together electronically (blogs, forums, facebook chats) to help facilitate communication.

    Anyone from other provinces or states have a better connected electronic communication between students from different professional health science faculties?

  6. Oh cool see you there! Weather network says it'll be sunny too... hope that's true.

     

    I'm commuting from Burnaby too! During undergrad I was commuting by skytrain from Lougheed + 84/99. Probably going to switch it up and go for Joyce Station + 43 since it stops near the pharm building and no way in hell am I walking from the bus loop LOL

     

    Collegia I don't think is really worth it, you're going to be basically living in the pharmacy building anyways and they have a bunch of resources over there.

     

    ...yo sign up for your immunization review appointment ASAP

    You can do it over the phone. I actually called up last week to set one up and they were like "um yeah we're booked up until August". Wound up getting a slot at the end of August so yeah you might wanna do that on Monday morning.

    We could use some sun! Lots of great info. Thanks for the details on the bus: Coming from lougheed too. Wow didn't know they were that booked. Going to have to practise putting my 3 hours a day on the transit so maybe I'll phone en route.

  7. So in a few days (hopefully) we'll receive an email from UBC with registration times. Follow the instructions there and register in one of the standard timetables that they'll upload sooner or later on the SSC. Last year I think there were 6 different STTs, but the only difference between them is your lab/tutorial time and which weeks you'll have labs (weeks 1, 3 , 5... or weeks 2, 4, 6...).

     

    Also is anyone else going to the SSRP BBQ on Monday? I hope it doesn't rain T_T

    I'll be there too.

    Trying to make this a beneficial trip besides networking and donating my $8 to the fundraiser. 

    Besides testing the transit times from burnaby (I'll be doing that twice a day....ugh), I'm thinking about checking out the Collegia too. Unsure about that idea but worth checking out.

    May make an immunization appointment and check out the student financial office/BC student loans office too

  8. Trying to get a list of things together to help myself get things finished early for this upcoming semester. 

    I've created a public calendar that I'll slowly be adding to with deadline dates, links, and campus events. If there are any important dates that I'm missing please let me know. Testing this open calendar out. If it helps other students, that's great!

    https://calendar.google.com/calendar/render?cid=aTVscXY0bjc2cDBsNmNtc3I2cnMwYWVtaTBAZ3JvdXAuY2FsZW5kYXIuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbQ&pli=1#main_7

    I'll update with specific website links when I complete each thing to-do. 

     

     

    Things that should be done soon: see google calendar above for deadline dates and more information

    Finances:

    1) Check out the current scholarship that are open now:

    2) Applications for BC student loans are now open: important to do this by July 15th

    Other:

    4) Obtain your immunization records and make an appointment at UBC

  9. Got my acceptance. 7:33 pm PST. Starting to worry about the 16k/yr investment into a unsteady job market -_-

    16k/year is not the whole number. Calculate lost wages/year, interest rates on loans, and extra school fees.

    On the other hand, 5 years from now the market may change for hiring pharmacists for urban jobs. Also, maybe the new pharmd designation might open up new doors for abilities of practicing pharmacists.

    Fingers crossed they're not sending 250 students a year into an overpopulated job profession....
