My son is just starting FYJC, Science. He is interested in Chemistry. What are the options he can pursue after class 12? Could you also throw some light on PharmD? What are the career opportunities after studying PharmD?

Ans: Hi Durga, nowadays there are numerous viable career options one can take post their JC and if your son is interested in Chemistry, he can consider pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, or related fields. If he's more inclined towards pharmacy, PharmD is an excellent choice. PharmD opens doors to roles in pharmaceutical research, clinical practice, and healthcare management. But ensure, that anything that he takes up is by his willingness in line with his career goal - such sound decision-making at an early stage will benefit him in the long run.

My son will be completing B.Pharm final year in June 2024. Should he go for job or pursue Masters. Currently, the jobs that are available in sales and Marketing. My son wants to focus on production, quality assurances. Is there any other scope apart from sales/marketing or production/quality assurances? Kindly advice.
Ans: Hello Santanu. First and foremost, thank you for contacting us. It is good to hear that your son will be completing his B.Pharm. degree in the next few months. Well, deciding to go for a job or master’s abroad depends on the demand of the field in the market, career goals, etc.
Talking about job opportunities, sales, and marketing is quite common in the pharmaceutical industry. There are opportunities like production, quality assurance, research and development, regulatory affairs, climatic trails, and a lot more. Your son can choose to apply for positions related to production or quality assurance as well.
If your son is unclear about a job at the moment, he can choose to pursue a master’s right after his bachelor's degree. A master’s degree would give him in-depth knowledge in specialised areas.
Encourage your son to network with professionals across the pharmaceutical industry and explore various internships in his field of choice. Additionally, your son can consider pursuing certifications or short-term courses related to production, quality, or related fields. This will add to his skills and make him industry-ready.

Dear sir, my brother was doing b pharm right now next year he will graduate,, please suggest what he will proceed after doing b pharm sir
Ans: Hello Lomina,

First and foremost, thank you for getting in touch with us. I am happy to hear that your brother is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) and will graduate next year. To answer your question first, I would like to tell you that based on his interests and professional objectives, there are many career paths that your brother can pursue once he completes his degree. I would recommend that you consider the following:

Your brother can consider working as a pharmacist in retail pharmacies, hospitals, or community pharmacies. Remember that this is the most typical employment route for graduates of B.Pharm. Pharmacists provide medications, advise patients on how to take them safely, and other health-related services. If your brother possesses strong writing abilities, working as a medical writer, crafting content for regulatory bodies, pharmaceutical companies, or healthcare organizations, is one of the other jobs that he could choose from. Documents including clinical trial reports, regulatory filings, and instructional materials are created by medical writers. Your brother may choose to work as a hospital administrator, wherein he would be responsible for controlling pharmaceutical services in healthcare facilities, in turn, guaranteeing effective medication administration, and monitoring drug delivery networks. Another career path for your brother includes taking up a job as a clinical research associate (CRA) or working in other research-related roles in research institutions or pharmaceutical companies. Remember that in order to make sure new medications are safe and effective for use, this entails conducting trials to test them. He can also choose to work in drug safety and pharmacovigilance, checking if the medications sold are safe, looking into unfavorable incidents, and making sure safety rules are followed. Your brother can also take up a job in regulatory affairs, making sure that pharmaceutical items adhere to rules and norms established by regulatory bodies. This entails creating and submitting regulatory paperwork, verifying regulatory compliance, and coordinating with regulatory authorities. Your brother can also choose to work in quality control or quality assurance positions in pharmaceutical companies, making sure that products adhere to regulations and standards of quality. In addition to the above, I would like to let you know that your brother can also pursue further education, viz., a Master's degree (M.Pharm) or a Ph.D. in pharmaceutical sciences or associated disciplines. Remember that pursuing higher studies can lead to possibilities for teaching, research, or advanced roles in areas viz., pharmaceutics, pharmacognosy, medicinal chemistry, or pharmacology.

When choosing which career path to opt for upon finishing his Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm) degree, I would suggest that your brother takes into account his abilities, interests, and professional objectives. Lastly, I would like to say that acquiring practical experience through internships or entry-level work may prove beneficial, as this will allow your brother to investigate other career paths and learn valuable skills in the sector.
