Abstract OBJECTIVE: To characterize postgraduation placement plans of 2013 doctor of pharmacy (PharmD) graduates. METHODS: A cross-sectional survey of PharmD graduates from 8 midwestern colleges of pharmacy was designed to capture a comprehensive picture of graduating students' experiences and outcomes of their job search. RESULTS: At graduation, 81\% of 2013 respondents had postgraduate plans, with approximately 40\% accepting jobs and 40\% accepting residencies or fellowships. Eighty-four percent of graduates reported being pleased with offers received, and 86\% received placement in their preferred practice setting. Students perceived that securing residencies was more difficult than securing jobs. Students who participated in key activities had a nearly sevenfold increase in successful residency placement. CONCLUSION: While the demand for pharmacists decreased in recent years, responses indicated successful placement by the majority of 2013 graduates at the time of graduation.
