Robert Pammett has worked as community pharmacist in northern British Columbia for two years. His aspirations of improving community pharmacy practice through innovative research has lead him back to return to the University of Saskatchewan where he earned his pharmacy degree, to pursue a Master of Science in Pharmacy. Mid-way through the program he has already excelled in both coursework and research, and is entrenched in mentoring undergraduate health science students of all disciplines at an inner city, student-run medical clinic.
With the help of the Wellspring grant to support his academic pursuits, he says his objectives are to enhance his leadership abilities in pharmacy practice and develop his capacity for high-quality research. He intends to share his findings through his thesis and via submissions to peer-reviewed journals.
