The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy is committed to fostering the teaching of the history of pharmacy in schools and colleges of pharmacy in the United States. We provide grants to help schools purchase needed resource and reference materials. Several Institute publications have become staples in history of pharmacy courses, and we are pleased to provide the following resources for teaching the history of pharmacy.

A selection of presentations to assist in teaching history in pharmacy education:
Teaching the History of Pharmacy Today (Madison: AIHP, 1999)
The papers in this compilation were presented at the symposium, “Teaching the History of Pharmacy Today: An Exploratory Session” [pdf] sponsored by the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy during the 144th Annual Meeting of the American Pharmaceutical Association, Los Angeles, California, March 11, 1997. The symposium was organized by AIHP Director Greg Higby.
“The history of pharmacy offers instructors a special approach to exploring the broad scope of the pharmaceutical field. It was my special pleasure to organize the symposium in Los Angeles and hear these fine presentations. There is much here that can benefit any pharmacy instructor and we hope that this booklet will inspire others to reach our students through history.”
