The labour market situation has revealed that 80.3 % of graduates worked 1.6 % were unemployed, and approx. 17.9 % of graduates were not found. Distribution according to labor market by institutions had shown that only one – third (30.9 %) of graduates work in the public health system. Most of the graduates worked in the areas which need medical knowledge: one-fifth – in health care and pharmaceutical institutions (20.8 %), medical device companies (20.3 %), 10 % worked in institutions, not subordinate to the Ministry of Health Authority but carrying on public health functions, 5 % – in universities and colleges. More VU graduates (39.3 %) compared with LUHS (26.7 %, p<0.05) and the KU (29.2 %, p>0.05) were employed in the public health institutions. Most of KU graduates worked in health care facilities (p<0.001).Most LUHS graduates worked in the pharmaceutical and medical device companies (p<0.05).
