The job of a pharmacist is not to consult, diagnose and treat but they do that in disguise.

These days they even do that openly without qualms.
As a dentist you can interpret the work of a pathologist for diagnosis and treaatment...btwn a pathologist is a specialist.
I'm not in health field but you are wrong. You people need to stop being scared of other health workers. Pharmacists are trained to consult. I'm not in Nigeria and that's what is obtainable. A pharmacist consulting shouldn't give you sleepless night, that's some inferiority complex

I'm just sorry for you.. it's not your fault..About 13000 applied for Medicine last year in UNIBEN alone and only 150 taken, that's not even up to 0•1%...
Now I see why many are envious of the prestigious MBBS as you can see the huge number that their hopes are dashed every year but many of them still try again and again to get it...I subscribe you to do something and it will be worthwhile.

A consultant Pharmacist dispenses medications and advises patients on drug use..They can call the attention of a physician to modify a drug list if need be..The issue of consultant title for non-doctors has been lingering for years but there hasn't been a definitive ruling on that for now and I don't think the title for a pharmacist is duly recognized in Nigeria.. Consultant pharmacists are recognised in countries like US but they are not hospital based.

Maybe I shouldn't bother saying anything again, and rather keep learning. We should just thank God for our achievements.

They are hospital based but they know their limits unlike nigerians that would bastardize it.

The issue of consultancy in nigeria is more of personal benefit than patient care(if you know what i mean).

I have been in this health sector politics for sometime and I'm tired.

The only advice that i can give to anyone is to sitdown and research about these courses.
How can people claim to be students and cannot research.
Later they graduate and start causing nuisance everywhere.

How did you arrive at the conclusion that they'll bastardize it? Perhaps your thinking is that every other healthcare professional is like the Nigerian physician whose stock in trade is bastardization of the healthcare sector.

Why is it so hard for some of you to understand the fact that no pharmacist worth his license would waste his time being envious of you Nigerian physicians or trying to be you All the pharmacist are saying is give them room to do their jobs to the fullest as obtains in the developed societies, they are not trying to usurp your duties.
Only doctors who don't know their callings would be bothered about the roles of consultant pharmacists! The roles are very distinct! Try and decipher your role and fit in instead of whining.

This is nigeria bro, it will be bastardized.
I know there are pharmacists that know their worth but majority are just there. Reason why pharmacists still go back for medicine.

Maybe when pharmacists start getting consultancy status by rigorous training in their Postgraduate College rather than number of years in service, then i would take them serious. Same goes to other health profession.

Shey there was a time LASG gave consultancy status to some pharmacists by virtue of reaching GL17 what the heck is that
Doing the same thing for years without any advancement in knowledge and core professionalism and want to be a consultant?
Where is that done?

Then i should just be a General practitioner without specializing after some number of years, i would become a consultant cheesy

There are also medical doctors who are incompetent just like there are those who are good. I have seen many doctors who are grossly incompetent!

You clearly do not know the requirements a pharmacist has to meet to qualify as a consultant. Perhaps you don't know that there is a 5years residency training involved. No pharmacist would become a consultant just on the basis of number of years in service without going through the residency training.

Alright. No problem.
I haven't really seen the requirements. Once there's a rigorous training involved, then you guys can carry on. Its your right!

is there any other way it's taught again other than in pharmacology? Besides, it's a doctor that attends to patients. So, in real life, he applies it more than pharmacists. He knows more about it than pharmacists.

Poor knowledge. Poor one.

There is actually a residency program... Paid for by the Pharmacist himself not the government.

They can all be called doctors, but in the hospital, only medical doctors and dentists are ethically permitted to bear it or answer to the title when he or she is called a doctor in the hospital. Outside of the hospital, others can answer to it when they're called doctors.
Sorry for quoting you sir just wanted to make My opinion known. There are various branches of Medicine but some have become independent. They are:
*Human Medicine
*Veterinary medicine
* osteopathic medicine(usa)
*podiatric medicine (usa)
*Dentistry
The Doctor that is causing issues was held by the apostles because they taught"Doktoris" means to teach.
the Physicians who we know now did not start bearing the title until the late 15th-16th century.
Scholars were also referred to as Doctors because they have acquired knowledge and that is the PhD(Phillosophae Doktoris)
Philosophy means acquire knowledge.
Dentists were initially barbers. you get your hair done and your teeth done if need be.
the Doctors or Physicians refused to accept them because they saw them as common barbers.
It was only years later when they decided to make it a profession they saw the correspondence scientifically.
they're run by various boards but Nigeria is a shame.

He has a right to practice general medicine in his clinic. His degree is MBBS (bachelor of medicine; bachelor of surgery). Therefore, he studied surgery too and can do minor surgeries if he's capable of doing it. It's not wrong. He studied pharmacology and therefore has a right to prescribe drugs. That's his responsibility. He can only go wrong when he starts delving into surgeries that only specialists can perform. No doctor practises optometry. He can only practise minor areas of ophthalmology, except he's a consultant ophthalmologist. Optometry is within ophthalmology, a branch of medicine.
Sir you know that no generalist can peform surgery

What you're studying is PHARMACEUTICAL TECH in poly. not BACHELOR OF PHARMACY in University. It's a different thing entirely. There are no medical courses in Polytechnic no matter how you're being deceived. Pay attention and read the information very well, you may be in the university someday for this same course. I hope this helps.
You are mad, I repeat again you're very much insane you Monopolistic dumb pharmacist.
The young lad is pouring out his heart here and you fussing out your rubbishs.
You think the polytechnic system is easy, you bastards. Why don't you run the pharm tech course there and pass out without an extra year.Dumb dumb.
