Philip apprenticed in James McCune Smith's pharmacy from 1840 to 1842. On that basis he was allowed to matriculate at the College of Pharmacy of the City of New York. Out of an entering class of twenty-seven students, he was one of only four to graduate two years later. But unlike the other graduates, Philip was not given the professional credential of becoming a member of the College. In 1874, a full thirty years after his graduation, two senior members of the College decided to "cheerfully" recommend his election to membership.
