Where is the evidence?

From Mr F. S. Ahmedali, MRPharmS

As a non South African, I was shocked to read Monty Goldin’s letter (PJ, 16 July, p82) claiming that the degrees obtained by South African pharmacists are substandard.

I obtained my degree from a British university and had the pleasure of sharing part of my preregistration year with a South African. I did not find this preregistration pharmacist’s knowledge to be “inferior” at any time. In fact I was sometimes astounded by the training they received at the South African institution. I found several gaps in my training even though I attended a “superior” institution in Britain. I have worked alongside several pharmacists educated in South Africa and have found their knowledge to be on par with and sometimes exceeding that of some British trained pharmacists.

Can Mr Goldin provide evidence for his claims?
