    That’s really a very broad question. Both have high paying opportunities and Botha have low paying opportunities. It would depend on how far you choose to take either discipline. Both are also clinically relevant and are specialties of laboratory medicine employed in both biomedical scientist’s job role and clinical scientist’s job role. I would leave your final choice, ultimately, to which subject you feel would benefit your learning journey the most. Which would give you the most return for your intellectual investment?

    Well having studied both as modules on my course o do have a minor insight. What is your ultimate goal? What makes you tick? Is it the clinical route you’re wishing to head down? If so I can explain a little more as to what’s involved with each discipline in an NHS pathology lab!

    If you're wanting to work in a NHS laboratory as a Biomedical Scientist then these degree's are absolutely the wrong route. They're not IBMS-accredited for a start.
