I'm writing on these forums for an English paper about a discourse community of my choice. The community I chose was Pharmacy because I'm interested in the pharmacy field and I was curious to see if the post-university schools are doing a good job of training their students. Having interviewed a few pharmacists in Arizona and doing research through academic journals, most have said that the extra curricular activities and internships are the most effective tools for training students. I would argue that schools with these programs are going to have students who feel more prepared than schools without such programs. As pharmacy students or pharmacists yourselves, would you agree that extra-curricular activities and internships are the best way to train students? Or do you feel there are better ways of doing so. Thanks in advance for responses.
