Any advice on career prospects for Precision Medicine or Pharmaceutical Sciences

Hi everyone, so earlier this year I mentioned trying to change industries from chemical engineering to something else and got some great feedback here. I've always been interested in the medical field so I have been looking at doing a Masters in Pharmaceutical Sciences or in Precision Medicine (I've seen some universities offer other disciplines an opportunity to do precision medicine/translation med) especially if I can't get an entry level job into the industry right now. Do y'all know of anyone in Chemical engineering who ventured into these degrees or perhaps the job prospects or types of jobs I could get with it. I think my concern is will I get a job after doing engineering and then a different Masters 🙈

Having background in Engineering in your case is Chemical Eng. and specializing in Pharmaceutical is common. My current Uni employer - Adelaide rank 100 in the world in chemical engineering and they offer major in pharmaceutical for those pursuing career in health care industry. Keep up with good work. Having a degree in Chemical Eng. already shows your ability in problem solving and analytical thinking. Depending on the role you want to start in the industry ( technical or servicing) then you should be able to look for job prospect on payscale for US or joboutlook for Aus, National Career for UK. Good luck!

Depending on your current job responsibilities, are you sure that you require an additional degree? If you currently do bench work in a laboratory, I think that you might be able to get an entry level position as a scientist at a pharmaceutical company. However, if it is not bench work, then you would need to get a certification or additional education.
