One of the most important decisions that you will ever make is your career choice. Although many students enter college wanting to become physicians, most students have little or no knowledge of what is involved in the practice of medicine.
When asked why they want to pursue medicine, most student answer that “they want to make a difference, impact lives and help people.” While these are important motivations for pursuing a medical career, there are other factors to be aware of when analyzing your career choices.
Make a difference in the local community whilst gaining hands-on experience. We organize medical internship placements in local hospitals, international medical centers and clinics. We offer placements in a range of different clinical departments including Dermatology, Surgery, Neurology, Orthopedics, Pathology, and Pediatrics.
If you’re interested in a meaningful, hands-on medical experience, consider a Medical Internship. Gain clinical laboratory experience while you examine biopsies and evaluate blood work. Medical Interns shadow closely the hospital and clinic staff.
During your internship, you will broaden both your understanding of Western medicine and aspects of ancestral Chinese medicine.
It is not just science graduates who can have successful careers in the pharmaceutical industry. It is vital that the right graduates join the sales and marketing side of company operations too. Companies need graduates with excellent communication skills and a sound understanding of the industry to promote new products to a highly competitive international marketplace.
Medical or non-medical graduates can also pursue a career in registration and regulatory affairs, as it is essential for companies to show compliance with the necessary regulations before a drug can be developed or marketed. Strong writing and linguistic skills are desirable in this area, as is proven expertise in statistics and computer technology. Other specialist functions within the industry offer challenging opportunities for graduates interested in business management. Specialist support services include finance, legal, personnel, safety and environmental control, purchasing, accounts, and administration.
The pharmaceutical industry develops, produces, and markets drugs licensed for use as medications. Pharmaceutical companies can deal in generic and/or brand medications. They are subject to a variety of laws and regulations regarding the patenting, testing, and marketing of drugs in Asia.
