Best practice vs. actual practice
In the last few months, I have heard from more than one intern and student that what is being taught at university is "far from reality" or, "it doesn't work that way in practice". What can be the reason for that? Have academics lost track of what is really happening out there at the coal face? Are we teaching certain aspects of the practice of pharmacy, knowing full well that it doesn't work that way in real life? A word of caution here: remember that in South Africa, we are still in the lucky situation in which the majority of our pharmacy academics are actually pharmacists, and most of them still work in pharmacies.
