About Us

The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP), founded in 1900, is the national organization representing pharmacy education in the United States.  Pharmacy is the third largest health profession – after nursing and medicine – with more than 200,000 clinicians practicing in community pharmacies, hospitals and many other healthcare settings.

The mission of AACP is to lead and partner with our members in advancing pharmacy education, research, scholarship, practice and service to improve societal health.

AACP provides member services – including meetings and events, webinars, continuing education, publications, reports and searchable directories for faculty, speakers and grants. AACP also works to promote the profession of pharmacy and the value of pharmacy education to audiences beyond the academic community.
