A joint AACP/APhA Steering Committee was charged with proposing revisions to the current Oath of a Pharmacist, so it is inclusive of diversity, equity, inclusion, and anti-racism (DEIA) values.
Background: The Oath of a Pharmacist was first developed by the joint APhA-ASP and AACP-COD Task Force on Professionalism in 1994. The AACP Professionalism Committee, a sub-group of the AACP Student Services SIG, first recommended revisions to the Oath in 2006 to address the development of new pharmacists, patient confidentiality, lifelong learning, and community service. The revised Oath was approved by AACP in 2007 and APhA in 2008. Colleges and schools of pharmacy began using the current version of the Oath during the 2008-2009 academic year for spring 2009 graduates.
The committee would like to garner feedback regarding the proposed revisions that will be shared with the Steering Committee, the AACP Board of Directors, the APhA Board of Directors, and association staff. Your valuable feedback will inform the revisions to the Oath.
