What are the options for students who have opted for science as their stream. The answer to this may lead to multiple conclusions and decisions, however, a large number of people choose to opt for professional courses as a step towards joining the industry.
Most of them prefer to join a 6-month to a one-year long course as they feel that it’s a step closer for them to finally join the industry and start working as a professional.
One such field that has grown by leaps and bounds over the recent times is the Pharmacovigilance Industry. India is in fact the pioneer to have a dedicated institute to the industry for the first time in the world- ICRI. The institute not only provides the best education in Clinical Research but is also renowned of having published books on clinical research which are the first of its kind.
The institute was quick enough to develop its courses to suit the need of the industry. Thus, a number of Pharmacovigilance Courses have been developed that churn out pass-outs every year who go and join MNCs, getting placed not just in India but also in foreign lands. About 30% of the alumni of ICRI are currently placed in Singapore and other foreign countries. Among the companies visiting for placements are TCS, Wipro and Infosys, just to name a few. Thus, this is one of the rare part time courses for science graduates that reap in heavy returns soon after passing out!
