A survey was conducted to determine if a shortage exists of graduates interested in residency and fellowship training, and whether program preceptors experience difficulty maintaining funding.
Questionnaires were mailed to 195 preceptors listed in the American College of Clinical Pharmacy Directory of Residencies and Fellowships, and responses from 143 (73%) were compiled.
Average numbers of applicants interviewed per available position were 3.1,3.3, and 2.6 for general clinical residency specialized residency, and fellowship positions, respectively.
Approximately 20% of specialty residency and fellowship positions were reported to be unfilled, and 70% of preceptors of these programs expressed the opinion that a shortage of interested graduates exists.
Difficulty maintaining funding was most frequently reported by fellowship preceptors (54%), and several sources of funding were required to maintain such programs.
