Getting into the Pharma Industry

why now?

Just because you got into medicine, dentistry, or pharmacy does not mean you need to remain in clinical. This is all the more true in the present time with limited permanent positions being offered to healthcare professionals.

The healthcare industry is constantly changing and there are numerous ways to make a positive impact on patient care beyond the clinical setting. Transitioning into non-clinical roles is a crucial aspect of career advancement, leading to managerial and leadership positions.

As much as we all love treating patients, being in a non-clinical position provides a bird's eye view of the industry, allowing you to influence healthcare on a larger scale. So why limit yourself to the daily grind when you can elevate your career and help shape the future of healthcare?

The healthcare industry is ripe with exciting opportunities that didn't exist in the past. For instance, roles like Healthtech Consultant, where you can develop software for hospitals, are now available.

These positions represent a shift from traditional healthcare roles and offer a chance to work on cutting-edge technologies that transform patient care. Embracing these emerging roles will not only lead to a rewarding career but also positively impact the healthcare industry.

Besides, opportunities for specialization have become increasingly impossible to obtain. Gone are the days of job security through permanent positions and specialization opportunities at KKM especially with the increasing number of medical graduates churned out annually.

Once their KKM contracts ends, many healthcare professionals will become unemployed and left to fend for themselves. This is a frightening prospect.

The future of young healthcare professionals is uncertain at this time. Many continue to think that once they have graduated and entered KKM, they are set for life.

But the fact is, the future of young professionals such as doctors, dentists, and pharmacists at KKM is uncertain as there is no clear criteria for permanent positions. Additionally, for those under the contract system, the pathway for specialization looks immensely bleak.

What’s really needed is a change of mindset among young professionals in the public healthcare system. Clinical medicine is not the entirety of healthcare. Healthcare is so much bigger than that!

Previously, the pathways for doctors were clear cut and there was no need to investigate alternative career pathways. But times have changed, competition is rife, and healthcare professionals need to fend for themselves.

Clinical medicine is not the only way to make a difference in the lives of patients. Healthcare being a vast playing field, it’s time to equip yourself and stand out from among the many healthcare professionals flooding the market.

You need to do this for yourself instead of expecting someone else to clear the path for you.

It’s time to take charge of the situation in your life and in your career. YOU NEED TO MAKE THAT CHANGE FOR YOURSELF!

Take CONTROL of your OWN Career! There is no better way to do this than to talk to other healthcare professionals who have walked down the same path that lies before you.

These healthcare professionals have the knowledge and skills in combining their healthcare degrees with valuable skills that have enabled them to thrive.


Imagine being in a room full of people and finding the answer to your burning question – “What are my options outside of KKM?”

Imagine being in a room full of people, finding your options, and being affirmed and celebrated and not judged by those around you.

Imagine being in a room full of people, finding your options, and being affirmed and celebrated and not judged by those around you.


Imagine being in a room full of potential employers with whom you can speak to and obtain advice in making your job application stand out from among other healthcare professionals in the market.

Imagine being able to connect with experienced mentors who will be able to guide you with your burning questions on leadership, making the right connections in industry, and managing your team.

Imagine becoming a healthcare professional overseas just by meeting another healthcare professional who has already started his/her moving abroad process. Imagine the time you will save in searching for your answers.

By being at the HDCC, you will be in the same room as other healthcare professionals who have already done what you want to do – transition to pharma, hospital management, corporate arena, medical devices, health technology, other healthcare management roles and other clinical fields outside of the hospital system etc.

Not Ready For Your Big Break?

Consider the price of not attending the HDCC. Imagine this scenario – A year from now you are in the same old job you dislike and totally in the dark about career opportunities available for you simply because you did not attend the HDCC. Your family and friends think all is well with you because you’re a doctor but you know that you’ve never been more down in your life.

You remain clueless and search for answers in the dark all by yourself. What a lonely journey that would be.

But your peers who attended the HDCC have spoken to healthcare professionals who have successfully transitioned to other fields. They made valuable connections with employers all because they participated in the HDCC. As a result of attending the HDCC, doors of opportunity have opened for them and now they are in a brand new career enjoying job satisfaction.

Wouldn’t your outcome be far different from theirs? Is this a gamble you are willing to take with your life? Take this opportunity to do yourself a BIG FAVOR and SIGN UP for the HDCC!
