MARCHANTE CASTELLANOS, Pilar  and  MERCHAN GONZALEZ, Francisco. The School of Pharmacy in the University of Havana from 1902 to 1910. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.1, pp.134-156. ISSN 0034-7515.

Beyond any doubt, the US army intervention in the Cuban revolutionary war in 1895 and the subsequent military occupation paved the way for that country to attain its ultimate political objective in relation to Cuba in the 19th century. For this reason, when the interventionist authorities left the island in May 1902, they made sure of the existence of a republic inevitably tied to the plans of the Northern neighbour. The history of the University of Havana, which had been the pure reflection of the main events occurred in Cuba during the colonial times, would continue playing the same role in the republic under US influence. This paper presented the most relevant developments in the first eight academic courses in the School of Pharmacy of the University of Havana, a period of time when the second US military intervention took place and the university set of rules of 1901 and the syllabus of 1900 (Varona's plan) remained in effect. Pieces of information on the academic results, the composition of the faculty and the graduates of the School of Pharmacy in this period were also provided.

Keywords : History of pharmacy; pharmacy studies; University of Havana; School of Pharmacy; Cuba.
