In recent years, the role of the pharmacist has changed tremendously. Patients’ health care and cost of disease treatments played a major role in redefining the pharmacist roles toward patient care. The field of Social and Administrative Pharmacy (SAP) has been fueled by the ever scarce resources in the health care area, applied approaches from management, economics, epidemiology, informatics, marketing and the social sciences to matters related to pharmacy and health care. SAP encourages collaboration between pharmacists and other specialists in many different areas. Research in SAP would provide health and policy makers valued information related to new and existing medications, comparing between different health programs, health policy decisions, rationale use of medicines, pharmacoepidemiology and pharmacoeconomic studies and many other health related studies. Brief History of Discipline of Social and Administrative Pharmacy (DSAP)has been described in the current article.
