Hi,

I'm graduating in 2013 with a BSc Biological Sciences (neuroscience) which isn't IBMS accredited.

I've looked at all the websites on how to become and NHS biomedical scientist but none of them give a clear definitive route unless you do an IBMS accredited degree.

I was hoping you guys could answer a few qs for me:

1. with my degree as it stands, could I apply for the NHS scientist training programme?

2. If not, how do I go about applying for, and finding out what, "top up modules" I need to take?

3. If I do an IBMS accredited masters programme would this mean I can apply straight for a biomedical scientist role in the NHS, or would I then also need to apply for the NHS scientist training programme?

4. What extra training is required to get to consultant level?

Juliet.

Your best bet is to contact the IBMS and ask.

So biomedical scientists and clinical scientists are different. You do not need an accredited biomedical science degree to become a clinical scientist. You simply apply to the scientist training programme. You do need one to become a biomedical scientist. To have your degree accredited by the IBMS, you need to send off details of your degree, they will then tell you which top up modules are required for accreditation. Hope this helps!

It's poor practice to respond to ancient posts. It's very unlikely the OP is still seeking advice.

It may help someone else seeking advice. I certainly don’t see it doing any harm.
