"This is a tool. Like a hammer or a shovel, only a lot more complicated. Just because you don't understand something at first...doesn't mean that it's the magic of the gods." ~Daniel Jackson, Stargate SG-1
Secundum artem is a Latin phrase meaning "according to the art." It is frequently used to doing something in the accepted manner of a skill or trade; in medicine, it is often taken to mean "use your skill and judgment."
Secundum Artem, then, is a blog about pharmacy written by a pharmacy student. But it is also about more than pharmacy; it is a collection of one man's thoughts about medicine, science, politics, ethics, life, and the connections between them.
Unfortunately, we live in a sue-happy world, so I have to include a brief disclaimer.

Who writes Secundum Artem?
S.A. is written by N.B., a pharmacy student with a lot on his mind. He's a fan of self-reference, irony, critical thinking, and writing blog descriptions in the third person.
Give him a couple more years, and he'll be able to call himself N.B., PharmD, RPh (but probably won't, because that is one pretentious mouthful).
