Chemistry and Pharmacology

Montmorency College

Start at the beginning.

I'm studying Sciences at Montmorency College to become a pharmacist. It's my final year of college, and I'm perplexed. I'm not sure which university I want to go to.

Choice 1 : Go to the University of Montreal.

Choice 2 : Go to the University of Laval.

Go to the University of Montreal.

I am happy that I have chosen to study at the University of Montreal. I love the professors here, and I'm happy that I am close to my family and friends. After two years of study, this is my last year at university. I wonder what I can do after finishing my studies.

Choice 1 : Work for the army as a chemist.

Choice 2 : Get a foot in the door as a research laboratory chemist.

Go to the University of Laval.

I decided to move to Quebec and live on the campus of the University of Laval. I have been living here for 2 months, and it's almost the end of the semester. I'm tired of all these exams and I miss my family and friends. I seriously wonder if I want to continue my studies. What should I do?

Military chemists at work

Work for the army as a chemist.

I decided to join the army. After the mandatory background check, I receive a modest salary with benefits since I work for the Canadian Forces. The Sergeant Major has just told me that he is forming a group made up entirely of chemists to work on a top-secret project. He wants me to learn the ropes and then to synthesize a chemical that is easily diffused in the air and has the ability to attack a person's nervous system. The amount that we have been asked to synthesize is enough to kill millions of people! What have I gotten myself into?

Work in a research laboratory as a chemist.

I have been working for 5 years in this laboratory looking for a cure for cancer. The equipment I use allows me to produce the compounds I want, and infrared spectroscopy allows me to check the purity of these products. My data tells me that it is better to add spores of a new species of mushroom that grows in Brazil to treat cancer. I don't know if it's a good idea since I don't know the effects of this fungus on humans.
