Employment outlook : employment forecast for the pharmacy workforce in South Carolina
South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium. Office for Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning
The majority of growth in jobs for Pharmacy Technicians (68%) is expected to come from new jobs rather than the need to replace people leaving the occupation. The majority of openings for both Pharmacists (62%) and pharmacy aides (60%) will be due to the need to replace those leaving the workforce. Pharmacy aides/assistants are generally trained on-site as needed to meet the clerical needs of the local pharmacy. In the 2012-13 academic year 147 Pharmacy Technicians completed certificate programs in the state. In that same year, South Carolina graduated a total of 239 new Pharmacists: 186 from the combined program at USC/MUSC and 53 from South University which had their first pharmacy graduating class in 2013. Another new pharmacy program at Presbyterian College graduated its first class of 76 new pharmacists in the 2013-14 academic year.
