    Coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the historic Millis Commission, this book serves not only as a reprint of the Commission's report Pharmacists for the Future but also as a roadmap of the evolution of pharmacy, both from a professional and an educational standpoint. This book describes the educational environment in which the Commmission was conceived, explores the ensuing changes in pharmacy education, and maps the progression of pharmacy from a product-centered, distribution-oriented profession to one that is patient centred and information driven.

    Preface - the workings of the Commission; transitions - changing emphasis in pharmacy education 1945-1976; prelude to the Commission - the intervening years; new insights into the Commission; reactions to the study; Millis applied - the Minnesota programme; thoughts for the Kellogg Pharmaceutical Scientist Programme.
