    Hey, guys. I'm really confused and require some help. Basically, I really enjoy Science at school. I would like me to be involved in it as my future career.

    I enjoy learning about Biology and a tiny bit of Chemistry. But, I would like me to specialise something in Biology. I've been looking at some options that I can take forward and they are;the biomedical scientist, haematology, paramedic, infectious disease, oncology, cardiology,medical work lab and working with patients etc.

    I would really like to work in a lab analysing results, working with doctors and staff to find solutions and communicating with patients.

    I don't really know what to do. Can you guys give me an insight to the above or tell me information about other careers.


    A good option would be BioChemistry from the sounds of things, it's a very open course that can lead onto a range of possibilities in the science and medical fields that involves research, lab work and other elements which you might not have thought of.

    Like Tom says biochemistry is great for career prospects of working in the lab. Biology BSc or Medicine will also take you to interesting places if you want to work in the lab but these offer a great breadth of choice. If you've always wanted to work in a biolab choose something with bio in it, if you are just interested in the body and disease, why not go for medicine?
