Demobilised troops and approved schools: The aftermath of the First World War as a catalyst for change in British pharmaceutical education
The impact of the First World War on a wide range of professions has been well documented. The upheaval of the workforce and the return of demobilised men led to an unprecedented and seismic reconsideration of entry requirements, educational needs, capacity and priorities at a national level. This article explores the situation for pharmacy, and particularly the national post-war educational context, through local case studies of new schools of pharmacy in Cardi , Swansea and Portsmouth. In Cardi and Portsmouth pharmacy education centenaries have been celebrated in 2019, whilst Swansea University will launch a new pharmacy degree programme in 2020, some 101 years after an earlier incarnation was established.
