10 Things We Love To Hate About Pharmacy School In Nigeria

February 14, 2020

1) Pharmacognosy Lab:

Just tell me, all the trichomes and oxalate crystals we were looking at under the microscope, to what end? Use it to find job na.

2) Dispensing lab:

Nothing more painful than hearing “your emulsion cracked” or looking away and someone has stolen your lab equipment.

3) One million courses in a semester:

So many pre-requisite 2 unit courses that had the capacity to ruin your life. To what end?

4) Devilish Pharmchem:

I.R? mass spectrometry? flying arrows? organic chemistry? – all of the devil. Imagine telling the doctor to change Levofloxacin to Sparfloxacin because the alcohol group on the 7th carbon increases its absorption. Alaye jor jor.

5) Steeplechase:

Running around the lab on a timer like a clueless person especially in Pharm micro lab. Why? It’s not like I know the difference in color between Salmonella and E.coli. Don’t stress me.

6) Lab reports:

The ghetto. How did we survive writing 5 of this per week? and we somehow had to study in between.

7) Forensic:

Who made 60 the pass mark for this course? I want to have a word in private.

8) Dress code:

Tie, shirt, skirt, trousers, inside heat and stress. Affliction will not rise a second time.

9) Mass failure:

If there was no semester that over 70% of a class failed a course, did you really go to Pharmacy school? The magic word used to be: “they are upgrading from 45.”

10) The dreams they sold:

“You are professionals, you will never have to struggle again in your life once you graduate.”
