Competition

The application process to enter a residency program is very competitive. However, at present about one third of all Pharmacy Residency Application Matching Service (PRAMS) applicants are matched to a program. This happens because candidates apply to more than one program. You may wish to contact the program coordinator for programs that you are interested in for information about competition for residency positions and additional factors that should guide your decision to apply to a program.

The following table shows the summary data about the number of programs, residency programs, and the success of applicants in being matched to a program.
