Description

Before the 1800s, no schools of pharmacy existed in the United States, and most doctors served as their own pharmacists. The mid-nineteenth century saw many changes to the medical and pharmacy professions. Better Service to a Larger Public provides a brief history of early pharmacies and the School of Pharmacy at the Medical College of Virginia. This history tracks the transformation of pharmacy education from being a part of medical courses to the foundation of the School of Pharmacy at MCV. This document also discusses the inclusion and admission of women to the program. Images of drug receipts, laboratories, and students are included.
