M. Pharm in Pharmacology is a two-year program comprising four semesters designed to provide advanced training in various aspects of Pharmacology, Molecular Biology, Pre-clinical & Clinical Drug Development, and Pharmacotherapeutics. There are excellent experiments to be carried out in each of these areas, which equip the student with skills for Research. The program has tremendous scope and students who emerge successfully have various career options.
Pharmacology is a subject, which connects the other disciplines of Pharmaceutical Sciences with medicine. This branch of Science equips a student with the ability to appreciate the establishment of dose, dosage, efficacy, and safety of medicines, their mechanisms, and disposition. Pharmacology gives immense scope for exploration into diversified subdomains such as Signaling and Molecular Mechanisms of Medicines, Clinical Pharmacology and Biopharmaceutics, Non-clinical and Clinical Trials. This opens up opportunities for further academic up-gradation, sometimes with funded research projects of national importance supported by Government-funded agencies.
The pharmaceutical industry, especially Clinical Research organisations offer a variety of career opportunities in different Business verticals such as Basic Pharmacological Research. Pre-Clinical Toxicology, Clinical Pharmacology, Quality Assurance and Compliance, Medical/Scientific Writing, Pharmacovigilance, Marketing (Scientific/Product Management) and many more.
