Jobs & Careers Can You Get with a Biomedical Sciences Degree | Atousa

  • Published on Jun 2, 2017
  • I know when I was studying my biomedical sciences degree at newcastle university, I was constantly stressed out about what jobs or careers this degree can lead to. now that I'm a bit older (and hopefully wiser!) I've learnt that there is actually so much that you can do with a biomed degree, and today I just wanted to share with you SOME of the things you can do! I didn't speak in too much detail about PhDs, master's, or research routes, but that is what I am currently doing myself (a master's in translational cancer medicine at king's college london)!
    I hope you find this useful! :)

    NEWCASTLE UNI?!?! I went to Hull for my Biomedical PhD! Can't believe we were so close! :D It would mean so much to me if you could visit my PhD vlog channel and give me some tips how to do better?! Keep up the good work!

    Guys I need answers in my questions please...

    Like I've heard that there in no math in this major. Like it's not in the top subjects. But I've searching more information about that, so what I got is some people say there is math, but low level way it's just simple calculate things. And some say that there is no math at all you just need to study cemetery and science and like that. So what the really subject that I will learn and is there physics?.

    Can you become a doctor after graduating in biomedical science?

    • Biomed Master
      Biomed Master 23 days ago

      Yes, if you can make it into med school afterwards :) You could go into research as well, and if you get a PhD, then you're also a 'doctor' (but not a physician ;))

      Dipesh Maisuriya you can pursue many different majors and still attend med school. I’m a bio major and I’m applying to med school to become a doctor but I have friends who have been hum and math majors get accepted

    • Biomed Master
      Biomed Master 23 days ago

      It's more focused on creating (bio)medical appliances, like for instance at-home blood-glucose monitors, or engineering cutting-edge radiation therapy machines... the focus is more on the engineering compared to biomedical science!

    • Biomed Master
      Biomed Master 23 days ago

      Get a Master's with a focus on immunology and infection. And then start a PhD in the same major, or look for a company or government institute doing research activities on that. For example, we have the Tropical Disease Institure in Antwerp, here in Belgium, while we don't even have tropical diseases in our country (yet...) (thanks, global warming...)

      That's what I keep hearing over and over, it's been like that since I graduated back in 2012, and apparently it hasn't improved, in most countries !!! (I'm from Belgium). There should be better insights in options for freshers once they start! Thank goodness for Atousa who made this video. I'm also making on to extend on her's, because some options are left untold. Still, she gives a great sense of direction already! sad she stopped YouTubing though!

      Don't become a scientist if you want to get paid well. Well paid jobs are engineers, doctors and business related things.
      But to answer your question, pharmaceutics. Industry is where money comes from, and that's the only industry you could work in

      @Mrs. Brendan of course u can.For me i intergrated to a clinical scientist esc job and i work more with biomedical scientist as opposed to public health and its the opposite for biomedical scientist as well. Theres alot of laboratory field work and expertise that biomedical scientist can offer to the general public. Personally i wish i took biomedical science because its super wide

    • Zan Mathews
      Zan Mathews 23 days ago

      @Biomed Master public health is fun because its one of the jobs that people dont really get bored of.Tiring? Yes but its not your repetitive work that u usually do in the lab persay.
      Public health requires a little bit of every field.Communication,prevention of illnesses, spreading awareness, conducting research and some laboratory work if needed.
      It can be a bit overwhelming from my experience seeing biomedical students talking more to people because Biomedical science doesnt really emphasize on it.But the ones that convert really excel well. U get to do laboratory work from multiple clinics to even field laboratories, Today you're doing research on stroke and spreading awareness and tomorrow you'll be doing research on H1N1 and going to the sites and aiding the people affected by it. Just today and tomorrow the team will be going to a more secluded area with natives and spread about health awareness and theyll be conducting medical checkups

  • Crypto Trader
    Crypto Trader 7 months ago

    I am a premed student with a BS in Biology. Tried the Med school test seems like i will not be able to make it and it is taking lots of my time to retry again. Also doing a post baccalaureate to bring my cummulative gpa from a 3.0 to a 3.2 which is still not competitive for med-school.

    Tried to find a research job but was not successful, however i have been working for a medical device company for over 4 years now and have gotten lots of experience in manufacturing and quality Engineering.

    Since i have a deep academic knowledge on my science courses from my premed courses and i have the engineering experience, i was thinking to go for a masters degree that deals with both fields. For example genetic, tissue engineering or rehabilitation engineering or engineering researcher. I am looking for a some advice on this. I know i might have to take a few UG eng. courses that might be prereqs of the masters but i am willing to do that

    I've graduated from Newcastle university about a year ago. Still confused with what to do as I don't want to get into research and NHS positions are soo limited. I was thinking to get into clinical embryology but it requires a 3-year trainee position in NHS, too hard to get in.. any advice?

    • Atousa
      Atousa  8 months ago

      My best advice is to get ANY healthcare or biomed related jobs and you learn more about jobs and you meet lots of people who tell you (and maybe even offer you) positions you didn't know existed! Sometimes we accidentally get stuck in a 'study' loop and forget about the real working world and just how much there is out there! so I would say try and get your foot in the door first, and slowly figure things out :) and you get to earn an income too which is great!

    I'm applying for Biomedical Science and I've received my offers, and I'm most likely staying and studying in the North West, but I'm extremely worried about the job availability and opportunities afterwards. I've heard the course is rapidly increasing, and jobs are decreasing and already are hard to come by, plus you need a year experience on a placement in the labs, but unis hardly have any to offer for around 150-200 people on that course. Can anyone help, will doing this course have me stuck when I come out of it? I don't want my degree to be useless.

    I have applied for both Computer Science and Biomed and have offers to study both next year. However, I cannot decide what to do! I enjoy biology A level so much and find it extremely interesting, however, I can't see myself working in a lab when I am older. On the other hand, I feel like I will still enjoy computer science but it's not as interesting as biology but the jobs are much better paid, in higher demand and better working environments. How do I decide?!

    • Atousa
      Atousa  11 months ago

      I personally would say do computer science and then once qualified you could work in biotech companies, best of both worlds! plus there is also a high demand for computer scientists in research and biology! :) that's my personal opinion but I hope you make a decision you are happy with! best of luck :)
