5. M pharmacy jobs in Hospitals:
Apart from pharmacist jobs in hospitals, other job opportunities after m pharm are also available in the hospitals for conducting the studies. Its better to say clinical research centre rather than saying a hospital. Because hospital is anything which will treat patient diseases whether it may a small or big hospital. But every hospital will not engage in the research. Here we have to know about ethics committees**. Those hospitals(clinical research centres) having Ethics Committee only can take the permission to conduct the clinical studies. These studies may include drug or medical devices.
**Previously independent ethics committees are available to give the permission to conduct the research in humans. Presently Institutional ethics committees are available to give the permission in human studies mostly.
