    So people are making threads saying "utilizing an engineering major" and things like that, so I'll make my own.

    Currently I'm in a PharmD program minoring in statistics. What are some good ways of utilizing that statistics background?

    I know clinical research is one, but it's not that easy to get into (though I'll try). What are some other ones?

    Stats are useful for analyzing studies in journals, so you could probably do something with that (although most studies utilize a biostatistician for their calculations).

    Yeah. . but every pharmacist should be capable of analyzing studies regarding to statistics. I dont think having a degree in statistics is needed for it.
