Dr. SatinCareer opportunities in pharmacology and toxicology are excellent. Our graduates have  found employment in government, industrial, private and academic institutes both in the USA and overseas. Graduates have entered post- doctoral programs here or in other universities, or used their degrees to facilitate entry into medical school.

Medical centers, pharmacy schools and private facilities utilize pharmacologists and toxicologists to conduct research and to teach medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing and graduate students. The pharmaceutical and chemical industries employ large numbers of pharmacologists and toxicologists to test new drugs and chemicals for their utility and safety. Government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, and the Public Health Service also utilize pharmacologists and toxicologists in basic research and in formulating drug laws and chemical regulations.
