SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hey guys- I've considered pursuing a doctoral degree over the last 2 years and the two programs that have interested me most are the PharmD and MD. I've already taken the PCAT once and got an overall 74% composite score. I'll probably have to retake it to get a more competitive score. I was mainly considering the PharmD because of the wide option of job prospects in a variety of different settings, but i'm hearing a lot of negative feedback regarding pharmacy jobs. Is it just in retail or all jobs requiring a PharmD? Anyway, i'm open to pursuing an MD, but i'd only be willing to do the 4 years of medical school without the residency. My main question: Are there any good job prospects for an MD who has not completed a residency or would it be better for me to just pursue a PharmD given the current state of the Pharmacy industry? My background: Biochemistry undergrad degree and MBA in Marketing Management Work Experience: 9 years in a pharmaceutical company (1 yr analytical R&D, 5 years Chemical Process R&D, and 3 years pharmaceutical IT). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.
