There are other career options for those who do not get matched. Sometimes finding residency does not always pan out the way we hope for it to. Last year roughly 12,000 students did not get matched.

Pharmacovigilance and Drug Safety is a great option for those who would like to leverage their medical educational backgrounds and step into a high paying 9-5 type of career.

Studies show that the Global Pharmacovigilance market is expected to reach USD 5.51 billion by 2020, resulting in an increasing demand for trained professionals in the field. As more and more novel drugs are produced with large market sizes, an increasing number of expertly trained professionals are required to monitor these drugs and report the adverse activities to meet international compliance and regulatory guidelines.
