As such, it leads to a professionally recognised qualification, being externally approved by the Health Professions Council (HPC) and accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).

Biomedical scientists are essential members of the modern healthcare team and in collaboration with doctors, nurses and other professionals allied to medicine, aid in the diagnosis of disease, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment, and research into causes and cures of diseases.

The MSc will enhances the career prospects of those aspiring to middle and senior management positions within the NHS Pathology Service, will provide preparation for the IBMS Higher Specialist exam and Advanced Practice in Biomedical Science, and will further enhance career progression as a prerequisite for eligibility for the status of Fellow of the IBMS (FIBMS) and Chartered Scientist (CSci).
