No doctor of any type really. You can't get through the training process without having to deal with blood.

The problem with radiology is that you need to do a medicine degree beforehand, which will require a lot of exposure to blood......

We all meant Radiography/Digital imaging.
So X-Rays and whatnot- no blood.

Well you have to learn how to take blood etc, have placements in various areas of the hospital, and my course for example has a module on emergency care etc.

I would've said Biomedical Science because there is very little to no patient contact however its still not for the faint hearted to be honest.
Radiology or certain fields of research might not be a bad idea.

radiology is a branch of medicine, and requires a medical degree, hence lots of exposure to blood & ill people. and interventional readiologists can do various things which involve blood.

Surgery is not necessarily bloody and as a junior I'd imagine a lot of your time is spent on the wards and when you do go to theatre you just hold things for the reg/consultant and if you're lucky do some suturing

I work in a pharmacy and there are people who go in with cuts/wounds asking the pharmacist to "have a look" if they don't think it deserves a trip to A&E. Also people come in asking for their dressings to be changed, and parents bringing their children in if they've fell and cut their knees/heads/elbows outside. You may not see much blood as a pharmacist, but it's unrealistic to say you won't see any.

I believe what they actually mean is radiography, which simply requires a radiography degree :tongue: And it can actually involve blood, if they get involved in interventional work.

And I disagree with the point that MH nursing doesn't involve blood - some antipsychotic drugs need regular blood testing, and suicide/self harm involves blood, and lots of it.

If you would be all right with taking bloods then many things would still be open to you.
Why not look into something like dermatology or general practitioner. Most medical professions involve taking blood as it is a key part in diagnosing many conditions but if you are fine with that, those two fields are pretty much blood free (apart from the tests) but still very 'medicaley'

I think it's really hard to avoid blood ON patients in healthcare. You could be on a rehab ward and still get a fall with blood everywhere and head injury, or iv access falling out, coughing it up, vomiting it up, pooing it out, weeing it out, or wounds dehissing. Some professions it may be rare, but it could still happen and be unavoidable!
