Hey everyone I’m currently getting my masters in biotechnology and medical cannabis therapeutics. I’m thinking about getting my PhD in biomedical sciences within the next year but I’m wondering if it’s worth it? If possible could someone provide me with some of the job titles in pharma or biotech that require you to have a PhD?
