Abstract : Two groups of pharmacists (n = 145) assigned to 35 Army Medical Treatment Facilities were surveyed to assess job satisfaction. Pharmacists providing patient care were significantly more satisfied relative to pharmacists not providing patient care on satisfaction items constituting the factor 'pharmacy services provided.' On the other hand, no significant difference in satisfaction was found between groups on such organization characteristics as pay, working conditions, opportunity for advancement or effective communication among nurses, physicians and pharmacists. The findings are discussed relative to job satisfaction and enrichment.
