This vocationally-oriented course is specifically designed for those students wishing to gain an advanced education in the biomedical science field, either in industry or within the health sector. 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.
Biomedical scientists are in demand in the healthcare service (NHS and National Blood Service), medical research, pharmaceutical industry, and organisations such as the Health Protection Agency, Medical Research Council and the Health and Safety Executive.
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).
