Delivering Excellence in Lifelong Learning

Nwar Ahmad

With almost a decade of professional experience, Dr. Ahmad possesses a solid pharmaceutical background as a registered pharmacist, with a Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of Florida. Upon graduating from the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy, she enjoyed meaningful opportunities in retail, hospital and home care settings. She successfully learnt a diverse set of skills, while keeping in tune to critical developments in clinical practice.

In a fast pace environment, she provides genuine care to patients, upholding the significance of identifying as well as resolving medication-related issues. Her approach has extended beyond clinical practice, and into teaching students in formal as well as informal environments.  In fact, she had the pleasure of teaching and learning from students registered in the University of Toronto Doctorate of Pharmacy program (EPE/APPE) as well as students in Sheridan College’s Faculty of Applied Health and Community Studies and the Peel District School Board. 

Some of the courses Dr. Ahmad lectured at Sheridan College include Basic Physiology and Pharmacotherapeutics, Introduction to Pharmacology, and Advanced Concepts in Pharmacology.  As an instructor, her teaching philosophy is one that is individualistic and valuable to the student, coupled with self-reflection and continuous learning.
