Hello all,
I am currently a PharmD working at a pharmaceutical company. I am trying to decide between an opportunity in regulatory affairs and one in medical affairs. I cannot elaborate too much on the regulatory affairs position, but with the MA opportunity, the bulk of responsibility will be content development particularly writing standard response documents and reviewing information used by the medical information team.

Which discipline would give me plenty of room to grow and not face the barrier of not being an MD? Furthermore, which discipline gives me the transferable skills and experience to go to any biotech/pharma company? I'm also wondering which area would integrate well with business if I decide to pursue an MBA.

Thank you in advance for the insights.
