Travel Pharmacy Industry Outlook

While the highest levels of employment for pharmacists have historically been in health and personal care stores such as CVS or Walgreens, the employment of healthcare diagnosing or treating practitioners is projected to grow by 9% from now to 2031, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). As a leader amongst the top travel pharmacist agencies in the US, Barton Healthcare Staffing places travel pharmacy clinicians across a wide variety of healthcare facility types and industries.

Traveling pharmacists can expect demands for their services to expand past retail in health and personal care stores and into other healthcare settings such as hospitals and clinics as pharmacy clinicians become increasingly more integrated into healthcare teams. The future of the pharmacy profession is in optimizing patient care. Studies have shown that pharmacist intervention in 43% of patients within 6 months was successful in deprescribing risky medications, compared to 12% of patients without pharmacist intervention.


As the role of travel pharmacy clinicians expands, with an estimated 13,600 openings for pharmacists projected every year, according to the Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA),  the allied healthcare staffing market also grows by an average of 21% every year, bringing extensive new BHS exclusive travel pharmacy job opportunities for our skilled traveling pharmacists to choose from.
