Beautiful subject.

Yes, because being a clinician is a passion of 99% of medicos. Leaving every bit of clinical / lab work forever and engaging in corporate desk job scares all doctors.

Opportunities after doing MD Pharmacology are many with posts like Medical Advisor, Regional Medical Advisor, Medical Science Liaison, Pharmacovigilance, medical writing, medical monitoring, clinical research manager, clinical pharmacologist and more.

One of the main reasons why students opt for MD Pharmacology is because of the salary. So, yes. MD Pharmacology will get you a good package from companies with a starting salary of 12 LPA (lakhs/ annum) being a common average. I have seen people get packages up to 15 LPA as a fresher.

Good growth potential can maintain work-life balance, 8 hrs per day 5 days a week, As a fresher 11 to 12 LPA, subsequently 16 to 18 LPA after switching. senior-level 30-60 LPA
