    So i want a career in genetics. i was thinking about applying for the NHS scientist traneeship programme but i probably wouldn't get in and its not practical as im living in a different country than the UK and it means i would have to come back to the UK.

    My current degree is with the OU and im studying health sciences. After my degree I am hoping to apply for MSc Genomic medicine which can be done via distance learning.

    I want a career in clinical genetics but from reading online it says i have to go through the NHS STP.

    Can anyone suggest any other ideas/routes for me to get to working in genetics?

    Thanks

    Doesn't your country have a STP equivalent?
