Abstract:

Objectives:
The purpose of this study was to gain insight into current trends in pharmacy employment directly after graduation in the areas of community, hospital, pharmacy practice residencies, etc., and to relate those findings to environmental factors within the field.

Methods:
An exit survey was distributed to fourth-year students at The University of Arizona College of Pharmacy in the spring prior to graduation during the years 1993 to 2005. The survey inquired about each student’s initial job selection.

Results:
Data were collected from a total of 692 graduating students over the thirteen year period. Groups were assigned based on year of graduation: Group 1 consisted of data from the graduates of 1993-1995, Group 2 contained graduates from 1996-2000, and Group 3 included data from students during the years 2001-2005. The number of students pursuing residency training decreased between Group 1 (36.2%) and Group 3 (23.7%), with p = 0.006. Also, there were differences between Group 1 and Group 3 in regards to those students pursuing employment in community positions, increasing from 25% to 51.8% between the groups, respectively (p <0.0001).

Conclusions:
Over the last 13 years, the percentage of students from The University of Arizona College of Pharmacy that pursue residency training is declining, while the fraction of students choosing community pharmacy as their initial employment is increasing. This trend may be influenced by a variety of factors, including increased salaries in community pharmacy, rising tuition costs, and increased competition for residency positions.
