MSC Clinical Research in India: Future prospects & Scope

by Bhavna Sharma

Master's in clinical research is still not a very popular course among students. The primary reason for low demand is the low level of awareness about the discipline and the job prospects. But those who are studying or working in the pharmaceuticals industry are surely well versed with how good it is as a career.

Scope of Masters in Clinical Research

Indian pharmaceuticals industry is a huge one. The industry requires well-trained and specialized clinical research professionals, whereas the number of students passing out each year in the discipline is far less than the demand. It is important that the word about thus lucrative career is spread and more and more students come forward to take up such courses at graduate and post- graduate levels.

An MSc in clinical research in India is a career booster for those who are already in the industry. Full time MSc CR programs are available in top Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore & Kolkata. For those who cannot pursue full time programs can opt for post-graduate distance learning in clinical research. A master's be it a regular one or distance learning, will always be helpful in accelerating the career growth.

Remuneration

Pay packages for clinical research graduates are quite high. After a post graduation, one can expect a beginning salary of close to 5 lakhs p.a. As per prior experience, the salary offer can go even higher.

MSc in Clinical Research - Institutes in India

There are a number of colleges spread over the country that offer PG programs in clinical research. Here is a list of colleges/institutes offering master's in CR in Delhi and other cities.
