I received this email a few days ago. Anybody else?

I would call to find out the details, but I am already attending a workshop on Tuesday night. If you call in to find out details, please leave a comment here or send me an email to let me know what was said.

As an editorial comment, I find it interesting that a university is offering a Masters program in medication therapy management. Especially since insurers are not recognizing pharmacists as individual providers of MTM services.

But Medicare law is recognizing it (MTM) in the new healthcare law. Regarding insurers recognizing pharmacists MTM services, Humana insurance recognized MTM services by pharmacists for a long time now. I do believe that a specialty of Medication Therapy Management provided to medication experts is not only a waste of resources and time, but a blow to the credibility of any pharmacist. (However very profitable for UF and stupid for pharmacists going to school again) How incompetent a pharmacist (the only one medication expert in the US healthcare system) can be that actually needs to go to school again to learn how to counsel their patients on medication use. So, you go to UF of Florida pharmacy school for 5 to 6 years, get a license as a pharmacy practitioner, and you need to go to school again at the UF to learn to be a pharmacist counseling your patients about medicines? How more ridiculous can this be? Shame on you pharmacists and the UF! That is the reason why the profession of pharmacy has no credibility at all. How realistic is this? So the physician needs to go to medical school again to practice medicine in order to diagnose a patient? A nurse needs to go to nursing school again in order to administer an injection? A lawyer needs to go to law school again to practice law after passing the bar exam? (However, I take it back, some lawyers needs to go to law school again to practice, or should go to school again to practice)

I totally agree, any Pharmacist should be ankle to do this and if you need a refresher course then take one. That's what is needed a good course; not more school
