This is my life...Pharmacy. Although I am not an actual Pharmacist, I am the next best thing..I am a RL Pharmacy Technician. A friend of mine, Gospel Voom, had told me about a build he was working on...a build called Phamatopia. The Pharmatopia project brings together ten pharmacy schools from around the world with the aim to assess the use of virtual worlds in teaching.
As a Pharmacy technician, I had to visit. I was very impressed with the build, also impressed with the teachings. The first stop was actually a lab that had to do with IV medications. The lab had a test to see what you know about making an IV medication. The next stop was the tablet lab, where you actually have to put on a gown, glasses and hair net. You are instructed to compound a tablet, then you run a series of tests on of them being a test for hardness. While I was there, I did a few of the labs, and sat in on a conference...which I never get to do in RL... hahaha

After working a shift...I had to get a snack out of a hospital vending machine (soo glad they had Pepsi). Then, I did a little socializing...I tried to strike up conversations with the men on the sim. I think they were Pharmacists...cuz they were a little stiff (like the Pharmacists I work with..j/k). was an interesting afternoon. If you work in Pharmacy...I think it is worth your while to go check it out...if your not, go check it out anyway and see what a great builder Gos is.
Here is your helicopter to Pharmatopia
