UW's School of Pharmacy has been a national leader in pharmacy education and research for more than a century. Established in 1883, it was the nation's first school to award doctoral degrees in pharmaceutical chemistry, pharmaceutics, the history of pharmacy, social studies of pharmacy, and continuing education, and one of the first in pharmacy administration. The symposium celebrates this milestone of excellence.
