First Day Back in the Classroom at Makerere University School of Pharmacy

It certainly was great to be back in the classroom today working with the 4th year Pharmacy Students that I got to know last year.  Today they presented the patient case reports from their visits with patients this week at Mulago National Referral Hospital.

This group of 4th years were in the "hot seat" and ready to present their patient case.

The topic of the day was Peptic Ulcer Disease.  Although the other faculty and I grilled the groups pretty hard at times, I have to say I was really impressed with this, their first oral clinical presentations of the year.  This group of students is very bright and capable of great success.

It will be interesting to get them into the classroom doing the clinical skills lab next Tuesday to see what they have remembered from last year. This summer, though, they had 1 month of clinical rotations seeing and caring for patients so I hope they used their skills and I’ll see some improvement. I know they won’t remember everything, but with some prompting, I hope it comes right back to them.

By the way, I cooked a delicious chicken dinner for myself tonight in my little, but nicely outfitted, kitchen. I proved to myself once again, that I really can cook. At home I tend to leave that task to my husband who gets off work earlier than I do. (Oh no, did I just tell the world I can cook? Uh oh- I might end up with the job when I get back to the States.)

Pan-Braised Chicken with green peppers, red onion, and tomatoes.  I added a couple tablespoonsful of a Ugandan seasoned thickener that was recommended by Cathy and it was just delicious! (could have been served over rice or noodles but I decided to lo-carb it, since I carb-it up at lunch)
