Abstract The Brigham and Women's Hospital Pharmacy Department conducted a survey to determine how recently trained (since 1981) postgraduate pharmacy fellows have been employed. We received responses to mailed survey questionnaires from 40 of 42 institutions or colleges offering a pharmacy fellowship. Survey results showed 117 pharmacists completed fellowships from 1981 through July 1984. Fifty percent (58/117) of all graduates are members of college of pharmacy faculty, 20 percent (24/117) are pharmacy staff specialists, and 12 percent (14/117) have pharmaceutical industry positions. The survey shows that the majority of fellowships completed are in pharmacokinetics, with clinical pharmacology and infectious disease a distant second and third, respectively. Postgraduate pharmacy fellowships are important to prepare pharmacists for faculty positions in clinical or pharmacy practice departments of colleges of pharmacy.
