Formatted abstract
When are students given an opportunity to practice as pharmacists? When do they actually do the things that pharmacists do? In which communities of practices are students actively engaged? Who are the students becoming as a result of their curricular experiences?

Hence, we propose, as others have done in the past, that for an uncertain and ever-changing world, the pharmacy curriculum needs to be reconsidered. Social learning theory offers a potentially useful framework through which to do so. With this view, the curriculum aims to develop pharmacists who are a “certain kind of person,” a person who will think, act, and do things in a way that shows they are truly patient-centered pharmacists. Perhaps then we can stop tinkering with knowledge and skills and truly transform the pharmacy curriculum.
