 This research aimed to clarify the present status and challenges of evidence-based medicine (EBM) education in schools of pharmacy. We sent a questionnaire to 268 faculty members in August 2015, and a total of 192 were completed. The educational contents by respondents differed considerably. Only about 30% of respondents self-assessed the current EBM courses they taught as "fulfilling". Challenges such as "time deficits", "lack of exercise lessons and practical training", "limited awareness and skills of teachers", "lack of appropriate educational tools", and "insufficient academic ability of students" were mentioned...

The six authors of this commentary series, who have recently transitioned into or within an academic career, discuss challenging aspects of an academic career change. This is Part 3 of a three-part commentary series that focuses on when and how to say yes to the multitude of opportunities available to pharmacy practice faculty. Part 1 discusses feedback, evaluation, and advancement. Part 2 explains distribution of effort (DOE) and how to marry the different components of teaching, research, and service. While the entire series is intended to be read in continuity, faculty, or those interested in pursuing a career in pharmacy academia, can refer to Part 3 as a reference on how to screen opportunities within academia to maximize professional and personal growth and minimize career burnout...
