    Re: Which is better between MBBS and Pharmacy?

    Both the MBBS and Pharmacy subjects are having equal scope. An MBBS will help you to get in to the position of a doctor. This is a respectful profession. On the other hand, Pharmacy is also an important area which has high scope. You can get jobs in pharmaceutical companies; specialize in clinical psychology, drug manufacturing, and work as pharmacists. They can also try for the government jobs such as Drug Inspectors etc. Hence, you can analyze the scope of each course separately. You can take decision accordingly and choose the best course as per your interest.

    well, MBBS and PHARMACY are linked sectors where one gives medicine and one makes medicine
    both are good careers

    both have to go for PG to excel
    MBBS will cost u much compared to pharmacy.
    An mbbs doctor will have lot of job opportutnities
    finally MBBS is the best

    Hello Friend,



    It depends up on your interest , I will give difference between Doctor(MBBS) and Pharmacy , so that you can you know which course to take with good career.

    >>The main difference between doctors and pharmacists is that doctors are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients, that is clinical decision making.

    >>Whereas pharmacists are involved in ensuring the safe and proper use of drugs, bearing in mind a drug's indications (what condition it's supposed to be used for... in case the doctor makes a mistake or didn't choose the best drug; sometimes a doctor will ring to ask what the pharmacist thinks) and interactions/adverse effects (again, often checking up on doctors; but they also need to make sure the patient knows how and when to take the drug and what to expect).

    >>Obviously there is also the work that pharmacists do in the dispensary.


    *I think now you get some what idea which course you have to take.

    *If your economically good better to opt for MBBS. For MBBS course fee may be 25 lacks and above.

    *If you secure good rank in MBBS the fee will be very less.

    *If you get seat in govt colleges they will give you stifund also.


    Go according to your interest for a bright future.

    All The Best...

    Hi
    both is good.
    but according to me you should study MBBS because you can make doctor base on this qualification and you can open a clinic if you will retire but if you will do Pharmacy.
    then you can get good job but after retire you don't have do for something.
    so you should choose in this base.

    Hello Friend

    Before to answer your question i would like to say you that you cannot Judge between M.B.B.S and Pharmacy as both the streams have their equal importance. In my view you have to choose the field that you are having Interest as it is the main factor in future that will play major role in your Job satisfaction.


    M.B.B.S ( Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery ) :

    It is one of the prestigious course in India that you will be considered equal to God once you have started a good practice serving the people, you will be awarded with a Doctorate and giving right to Diagnosis patients.

    The main theme of a M.B.B.S graduate Diagnose patient problem and have to cure either with Medicine or with Surgery.

    The duration of the M.B.B.S course in India is 4 1/2 years with 1 year Internship after which you can open a Clinic or you can go for Specialization that is P.G in various streams like Cardiology, Gynecology, Obstetrician, Orthopedics, General Surgery and Medicine, Pediatrician etc in which the duration of the course is 2 years.

    So in order to complete all these steps and to open a Clinic and settle in your Profession it nearly takes minimum 10 years time as the competition is very high outside and along with this the number of doc's also increasing.


    Pharmacy :

    Pharmacy or Pharmaceutical Sciences is one of the major science subject that mainly deals with Compounding and Dispensing of Drugs.

    There are several streams in Pharmacy that you can enter of your choice like

    1. D. Pharmacy ( Diploma in Pharmacy ) :

    The duration of the course is 2 years and after the completion of the course you become an Registered Pharmacist and you are having a Certificate to open up a Dispensary / Pharmacy store retail or Whole sale.

    2. B. Pharmacy ( Bachelor in Pharmacy ) :

    The duration of the course is 4 years and after which you can enter in to different Pharmaceutical Industries in Manufacturing unit side of drugs or Quality control of Drugs or Research and Development of Drugs etc.

    3. Pharm D :

    The duration of the course is 6 years and after which you will be awarded with a Doctorate and you will registered as a Clinical Pharmacist in which you can diagnose and adjust the correct dosage and proper medicine to patients in a Hospital.

    But in India it is not yet developed and if you are having an idea to settle in Abroad it is the best option as many of the foreign countries are opting the Pharm D as their eligibility criteria.

    4. M. Pharmacy :

    It is a 2 years P.G program for the students who had completed their B.Pharmacy and want to do specializations in different streams in Pharmaceutical sciences.

    Apart from all these Pharma aspirant can also go for M.B.A in Pharmaceutical Management and many top B - Schools are offering the stream and there is a good scope for Job opportunities after the course completion.

    But dude there is a heavy competition held out side for the Pharma graduates in getting jobs in Industry side as it requires good knowledge at your subject and many more.

    So these are the some of the useful information regarding the Pharmacy and M.B.B.S course and for any further information you can leave your message here.

    REGARDS.

    Re: Which is better between MBBS and Pharmacy?

    According to me MBBS is better then pharmacy.
    Advantage of doing an MBBS are.
    1. You will get govt. Job in your own state.
    2.you can save the life of patients suffering from various disease.
    3.you will get lot of respect from people.......
    Disadvantage
    1. Difficult to get seat.
    2. Busy life.
    3.cost is more
    4.long duration,
    5. Always one have do hard work.
    While for pharmacy it is difficult to get govt. Job
    course duration is long B.pharm then M.pharm or D.pharm then B.pharm then M.pharm
    you have to do work in company may be distant from your state,you will get less respect then a doctor from people. So for me MBBS is better.
