Welcome to The Prescription Shop

The Prescription Shop is an independently owned pharmacy and travel clinic at Carleton University. As part of our ongoing efforts to tailor our services to meet the needs of students here at Carleton, our staff have developed skills to advise and assist students on the type of health issues they commonly face. One example of this is our travel clinic. This provides students and staff the opportunity to arrange a pre-travel appointment to assess their risks and vaccination needs for international travel. As part of our operation as a travel clinic, our pharmacy is also a designated yellow fever vaccination centre.

Employment Opportunities


We are currently seeking a full time pharmacy assistant or technician. Responsibilities include receiving prescriptions, data entry and other technical aspects of the dispensary.

The professional setting of our pharmacy offers a Monday to Friday 9 – 5 work week, and flexibility for additional vacation time during the summer months.
