Each year the Student Recognition Certificate Program of the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy encourages and recognizes historical study and other historical activities among undergraduate pharmacy students. We hope to make some further contribution nationally toward an appreciation of the humanistic side of pharmacy among students entering the profession.
Annually, since the 1968-69 academic year, AIHP has bestowed Certificate of Recognition upon students at schools and colleges of pharmacy from all around the country. We have awarded more than 1,000 AIHP Student Certificates of Recognition, and we invite your school or college of pharmacy to participate in the program.
The primary purpose of the Student Certificate of Recognition Program is to recognize and encourage superior achievement in pharmaco-historical study or activities by a student in each school of pharmacy in the United States that wishes to participate.
The basis for awarding a Certificate of Recognition is primarily to recognize the student earning the best record in a course mainly devoted to pharmaceutical history, as judged by the class instructor. To accommodate schools that do not offer such a course, the scope of the program includes recognition of a student who best carries out some other type of pharmaco-historical activity (e.g. historical essay, collecting books or artifacts, historical photography, historical hobbies, etc.).
Procedure for Recognition: At an appropriate occasion selected by the faculty member, the school or college presents an AIHP Certificate of Recognition and an awards package of recent AIHP publications on behalf of AIHP. This Certificate should supplement any similar existing awards.
The method and basis for selection is left to your judgment, as long as it remains within the general spirit and framework of this program. There is no set deadline for submitting a nomination form, so the presentation can be made at a time most appropriate for your program.
