Enrollment Report on Graduate Degree Programs in Pharmacy, Fall 1981.
Chasin, Steven H.
The results of the 1981 Enrollment Survey of Graduate Degree Programs in schools of pharmacy are presented, based on responses from 52 schools of pharmacy. Information is presented on: fall 1981 full-time graduate enrollment in masters programs; minority full-time graduate enrollment in masters programs; full-time graduate enrollment in Ph.D. programs; minority full-time graduate enrollment in Ph.D. programs; part-time enrollment in graduate programs; graduate part-time enrollments by discipline; previous degrees of full-time and part-time graduate students; 1981 geographical origin of full-time graduate students; state of residence of American graduate students by degree; enrollment of American full-time graduate students by state of residence; country of origin of foreign full-time graduate students; financial support programs provided to graduate students in 1981-82; graduate programs (M.S. and Ph.D.) offered in 1981-82; and change in pharmacy school graduate full-time and part-time enrollments. In 1981 the total graduate enrollment in pharmacy was 2,961. A slight decline of 6.8 percent in the total full-time students enrolled in M.S. programs occurred between 1980-81 and 1981-82. This decline represents a 9.2 percent drop for men and a 2.8 percent decrease for women. By discipline, the average decline was 6.1 percent, with the greatest decrease in pharmaceutical chemistry and the smallest decrease in hospital pharmacy. In 1981, 1,257 students were full-time students in Ph.D. programs, representing an increase of 5.4 percent in comparison to the M.S. programs. The number of women increased 15.4 percent. It is concluded that while an increase in total enrollment in graduate pharmacy programs has occurred, the rate of increase has slowed over the last several years. (SW)
