BACKGROUND: Anti-doping activities are carried out on a global scale. Based on these activities, the specialty of "sports pharmacist," which entails a deeper comprehension of doping, use of supplements, and appropriate drug use for athletes, was established in 2009 in Japan. It is difficult to say whether the education on doping is adequate for pharmacy students who will be eligible to become sports pharmacists. It is also unclear how well these students understand doping. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate pharmacy students' current knowledge of appropriate drug use, doping and use of supplements, and to explore the need for further education on these topics...

In the past 3 decades, ultrasonography has gifted internal organs visualization to physicians to have a better detection of various diseases. Previously performed solely by radiologists as a method with high feasibility and accuracy, recently ultrasonography is being recommended and used by many other physicians in practice. Ultrasonography not only can be used to diagnose and manage kidney diseases, but also is an essential tool in nephrology for the guidance of invasive procedures. This method of bedside ultrasonography by physicians in real time is called point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS)...
