Hi! I live in Canada and I'm trying to decide which pathway of education to pursue. I have a choice of doing masters in organic and computational chemistry which is very exciting as I will be able to work with chemistry, math and coding. Also my masters is paid ($25k/year) and its only two years. My other option is PharmD (4 years) which is also exciting as I will be able to help many people. My only concern with pharmacy is that the job market is expected to go down in the future bc of the surplus of pharmacists in canada.

I would like to hear your opinions about which option is worth pursuing.

Thanks in advance!
