The pharmacist supply is less than the demand, according to the latest report by Korea Research Institute for Vocational Education and Training (KRIVET).

KRIVET released its report about the supply and demand of jobs for college and university graduates on November 20.

It found the total number of pharmacy school graduates was 2,111, but the demand in the job market was 3,489. There was a shortage of 1,378.

The total number of graduates from medical, dentistry, oriental medicine, and veterinary schools was 8,855, but the demand was 17,853.

But the supply of architect job applicants was surplus. The overage was 34,000.

Kim Ahn Kook, senior researcher, KRIVET, said, “The supply was greater than the demand in most of job markets, but the supply was less than the demand in the healthcare job market.”
