A Road Map to a Profession's Future

Front Cover
CRC Press, May 11, 1999 - Medical - 272 pages
Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the historic Millis Commission, A Roadmap to a Profession's Future serves not only as a reprint of the Commission's groundbreaking report Pharmacists for the Future, but also as a roadmap of the evolution of pharmacy, both from a professional & an educational standpoint. This book describes the educational environment in which the Commission was conceived, explores the ensuing changes in pharmacy education, & maps the progression of pharmacy from a product-centered, distribution-oriented profession to one that is patient-centered & information driven.
