Lessons learnt from supervising in a student-run clinic

  • D Johnston University of the Witwatersrand


We often reflect on students learning in classroom or lecture theatre. However, extracurricular student activities are also of educational value. In contrast to the formal curricula, attendance and participation are not monitored, nor do they contribute to assessments. In this environment I am not seen as the lecturer but as the supervising pharmacist. Below I have reflected on two lessons I have learnt though my involvement in Trinity Health Services (THS) in the hope that it may encourage further participation of pharmacists and students in such organisations.
