Founded in 2007, the American Institute of the History of Pharmacy’s Pharmacy Education Fund is a collaborative project between AIHP and American schools and colleges of pharmacy to promote and improve instruction in professional ethics and in the history and social aspects of pharmacy.
Since its inception, the AIHP Pharmacy Education Fund has supported several important projects, including: designing a White Coat Ceremony booklet that can be customized to your institution, converting the famed Parke-Davis Great Moments in Pharmacy series into an instructional PowerPoint format, and uploading the entire run of Pharmacy in History, AIHP’s academic journal to JSTOR, allowing students and teachers to easily access over 50 years of scholarly articles about the history of pharmacy.
Participation in the Pharmacy Education Fund not only confers public acknowledgment of your support of our mission, but it also allows preferred access to our professional staff. If you need assistance in tracing your institution’s history, setting up instruction in pharmacy ethics or the history of pharmacy, or finding historical references, help is just an e-mail or a telephone call away.
The American Institute of the History of Pharmacy invites all schools and colleges of pharmacy to join AIHP’s Pharmacy Education Fund to promote the teaching of professional ethics and the teaching of the history and the social aspects of pharmacy in pharmacy education. Please join online. For more information, email email@example.com.
