Celebrating the Bicentennial Edition of Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy
The 23rd edition of Remington: The Science and Practice of Pharmacy was published in November by USciences own Philadelphia College of Pharmacy (PCP) faculty and addresses the next generation of pharmacy practice while paying homage to the storied history of the University.
This special bicentennial edition celebrates 200 years since the founding of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy in 1821, an event regarded as the beginning of pharmacy education and modern pharmacy practice, while addressing modern challenges including COVID-19, substance use disorders and medical cannabis.
Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Adeboye Adejare PhD, edited the book, and Dean of PCP Ed Foote P’87, PharmD’91 penned the foreword. The 23rd edition of Remington shows the nation’s first college of pharmacy has continued its legacy of excellence, said Dr. Foote.
“The ever changing role of pharmacists in the direct care of patients is elucidated in chapters such as point-of-care testing and the role of the pharmacist in the COVID’19 pandemic,” shared Dr. Foote. “This truly is a marvelous and comprehensive textbook.”
Remington was first published by Joseph P. Remington, professor and dean of PCP, in 1885, and has been the standard for pharmacy textbooks since. The new edition is written collaboratively by USciences faculty and alumni including chapters written by Jason Wallach, PhD; Dan Ventricelli, MPH, PharmD; Andrew Peterson PharmD, PhD’09; Grace Earl P’86, PharmD’92; Zhiyu Li PhD; Michael Saporito PhD’89 (pharmacology); Islam Ghazi, PharmD; Diana Soloman PharmD’16; Angela Bingham, PharmD; Lisa Davis, PharmD; and Randy Zauhar, MS, PhD.
The Bicentennial edition of Remington can be purchased online or through national bookstores such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
