Welcome to the profession

When I passed my “finals” for the Diploma in Pharmacy at the end of 1961 I was immediately able to register with the South African Pharmacy Board (SAPB). My two-year apprenticeship had been completed before I embarked on the three-year fulltime academic course at a pharmacy school, so the way was clear for me to become a registered chemist and druggist (the former term for a pharmacist).
