Career Opportunities after M. Pharm. in Pharmacology
Pharmacology is a backbone, which links the other disciplines of pharmaceutical sciences with medicine. This branch of pharmaceutical sciences furnishes a student with the power to understand the establishment of dose, dosage, efficacy, and safety of medicines, their mechanisms, and disposition. Pharmacology gives immense scope for exploration into diversified subdomains like signaling and molecular mechanisms of medicines, clinical pharmacology and biopharmaceutics, non-clinical and clinical trials. This exposes opportunities for further academic upgradation, sometimes with funded research projects of national importance supported by government funding agencies.

The pharmaceutical industry, especially clinical research organizations offers a spread of career opportunities in several business verticals like basic pharmacological research, pre-clinical toxicology, clinical pharmacology, quality assurance and compliance, medical/scientific writing, pharmacovigilance, marketing (scientific/product management) and lots of more.
