British Pharmacists and the Peking Union Medical College Hospital, 1910-1941
Prior to the Sino-Japanese War in 1937 the London Missionary Society played a pioneering role in the westernization of hospital pharmacy in China. The Peking Union Medical College Hospital (PUMCH) was founded with seed funding from the Empress Dowager Cixi of the Qing Dynasty in 1902. With the support of influential western physicians the hospital recruited its first pharmacist, Bernard Read, in 1910. Other British pharmacists including John Cameron made important contributions to the development of pharmacy at PUMCH between 1910 and 1941, and their influence is still apparent through those who practice clinical pharmacy in China today.
