This is why our profession will never make progress. I chose to become a pharmacist to be an expert in medicine, but sometimes I wish the pharmacy school curriculum would give us some training in diagnosing patients. Whenever we would come up with an idea to add more roles for our profession, it seems as if other health professionals would snatch it away from us...
