    Im about to finish a BSc in biology in the US. I have a minor in chemistry that consists of 1 full year of organic chemistry, Biochemistry, and pharmacology.

    My school doesnt have a biomedical science distinction, but I believe I fall under that classification as I've studied classes like: Anatomy and physiology, immunology, virology, cellular and molecular genetics.

    I wanted to apply to postgraduate entry into Medicine and likely try to go into clinical genetics.

    Or I was going to apply for the STP and go for clinical lab science, or genetic counseling.

    Both of these options are competitive so I am looking at other options in case I don't get in.

    I'd like to go for a masters if those two options fall through but I simply can't determine what would be good course of study since I do not want to go into research.

    An MSc in Molecular pathology seems like an option but I cant really find a rough salary estimate for this qualification nor what job opportunities are available.

    Does anyone have some input for an MSc for someone who wants to work in the clinical sector?

    Clinical Research is an option, it really dependa on where your interests lie. There are some very good genetics masters courses. Have you looked at the findamasters website?
