The External Parts of the Male Reproductive System

The reproductive system of both males and females are specialized in function and that they only work with the specific gender they are given to.  While the female reproductive system is more complex as it houses the environment a fertilized egg will grow into, the male reproductive system is in no way a simple one as well.  Perhaps, the most visible difference of the male reproductive system to that of the females is that the male have an external protruding structure.  This external structure is situated outside of the body and consists of the penis, the testicles, and the scrotum.

A rather unusual public-health initiative

Pharmacist prescribing prompts legal concerns

Do you need to adjust your practice to limit liability risk?


Physicians used to be the only people prescribing drugs to patients. Those days are long gone.

Over the last four years or so, in almost every province, limited prescribing and renewal authorities have been granted to other health workers, including pharmacists, nurse practitioners and even naturopaths.

The latest province to follow the trend is Ontario. Despite the Ontario Medical Association’s objections, work is now underway to permit pharmacists to extend, adapt and adjust prescriptions. New draft regulations will govern prescribing by nurses and naturopaths as well. British Columbia, P.E.I. and New Brunswick already have similar legislation, while Alberta pharmacists can become certified to initiate certain prescriptions. Nearly every other province is working on some variation of these ideas.
