Enrollment Report on Professional Degree Programs in Pharmacy, Fall 1980.
Speedie, Stuart M.
Enrollment trends in professional degree programs in pharmacy as of fall 1980 are examined. Information is presented on: full-time and part-time enrollments in the final three years in professional degree programs; enrollments in other than the final three years of the curriculum; full-time enrollments of students studying for the Pharm.D. as their first professional degree; enrollments of students already holding a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in pharmacy; previous pharmacy degree characteristics of Pharm.D. students; minority full-time enrollment; full-time minority enrollments by class at predominantly minority and predominantly nonminority colleges; enrollments in Pharm.D. Programs of minority students already holding a B.S. degree in pharmacy; special student enrollments; geographic origin of students; enrollments of American full-time students in each state by state of residence; country of origin of foreign full-time students; and enrollments by National Association of Boards of Pharmacy/American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy districts. It is noted that although the predominant trend in enrollments in professional degree programs has been one of decline, the proportion of female students has continued to increase and will probably reach 50 percent in the relatively near future. The percentage of underrepresented minorities also has increased continually, in spite of a leveling off in the number of black students and American Indians enrolled. The in-state/out-of-state mix in public and private schools has changed for the first time in several years, with an increase in the number of out-of-state enrollees. (SW)
