History

The University of Santo Tomas Faculty of Pharmacy is the first to offer Pharmacy in the Philippines. Founded in May 29, 1871 by virtue of the Modification of the Moret Decree. During the Spanish regimen the course took 6 years to finish, then was reduced to 4 years when the Americans took over. By 1926, the Faculty of Pharmacy was the first to accept female students. In 2006, the 5 year BS Pharmacy major in Clinical Pharmacy was offered that paved the way for graduates to venture into another promising field of Pharmacy practice.
