Pharmacy was first taught at the University of Michigan in 1868 in the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
On December 29, 1876, the University of Michigan Board of Regents established a School of Pharmacy – creating the nation’s first college of pharmacy at a state-funded institution.
Albert B. Prescott was the first dean of the College from 1876-1905. Prescott insisted that a pharmacy education should be rooted in basic science. By the time of Prescott’s death 34 years later, nearly all U.S. pharmacy schools embraced his educational model, effectively elevating the practice of pharmacy from science to trade. The pharmacy honorary organization Phi Delta Chi was also founded at the University of Michigan in 1883.
Today, the College is an integral member of the world-renown University of Michigan Hospitals and Health System, a member of the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), and is fully accredited by the American Council for Pharmacy Education.
