Abstract

Cost justification of a pharmacy residency training program was prepared. The contributions of the pharmacy residents were tabulated and compared with the cost of the program to the hospital. Contributions were determined by identifying the activities performed by residents that could be quantified in financial terms. The residents' activities that benefited the hospital included administrative support, completion of special projects, scheduling staff assignments, and coordinating education programs. Costs were derived from salaries, fringe benefits, and training expense. An output value analysis was performed by comparing the contributions of the residents to the institution with the cost of the training program. The contributions of the residents exceeded the costs of the training program by a ratio of 1.3 to 1.
