Not sure what you mean by a PhD in pharmacy? All schools of pharmacy are involved to a greater or lesser extent in pharmacy orientated research, whether it is drug discovery, formulation science, biomedical, microbiology, practice based or public health orientated. Some are better than others - just need to do your research and get a good degree classification.

Starting salary depends on your job of course. Community pharmacists start on anything between approximately £32,000 to £40,000 per year before tax while hospital pharmacists are paid via NHS agenda for change and currently start on a yearly pre-tax salary of £25,472. Quite a difference. Can't really comment on academia but suffice to say you will be paid an absolute pittance during your PhD and post doctoral years.

Best of luck.

Thank you for the details. But what I want to know is, in pharmacy can you study for a phd degree. I don't understand how it works exactly. Or is that clinical pharmacy.

You would study for the DPharm if you wanted to participate in doctoral level research as a pharmacist. It's reasonably similar to the MD for medics. Currently only a few universities provide this degree though. Strathclyde and Bradford spring to mind.

I would expect so but you may want to check with individual universities what their admissions requirements are. Good luck
