About the History of Pharmacy Special Interest Group

As an open academic forum, the AACP History of Pharmacy Special Interest Group strives to facilitate the exchange of ideas and innovation among pharmacy faculty across disciplines; to serve broadly as an accurate information resource for teaching, learning, and scholarship pertaining to the evolution and history of the pharmacy profession; to develop and maintain historical collections of artifacts and school or college museums; and to ensure the lessons, the message, and the legacy of the pharmacy profession is preserved to educate future generations of pharmacy students.

The SIG’s mission rests on the premise that the history and legacy of the pharmacy profession will always be relevant to all pharmacy practice areas, including current and future scopes of practice.
