Pharmacy school graduate...Uh not so fast

Got to work from home today so while looking around at various news sources I found this little tidbit. This just gives you another reason to hate the University of GA. (GO TECH)

The organization that oversees licensing of U.S. pharmacists has suspended use of its licensing exam, and accused a University of Georgia professor of providing the test's questions to his students.

The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy made the decision last week and suspended use of the tests from Aug. 25 onward. The decision was first reported by The Red and Black, an independent student newspaper at the University of Georgia.

But there is some good news, sort of.

The decision is not expected to cause an immediate problem for most pharmacy students, said officials at some universities.

At the University of North Carolina's School of Pharmacy - that state's largest training center for apothecaries - most students take the exam in the spring. The next group of UNC students isn't expected to take the exam until December, said David Etchison, a school spokesman.

"We expect the problem to be worked out by then," he said.
