biomedical science IBMS help!!!!!!!!!! Watch
I was applying for microbiology at different unis and was quite happy. But I had work experience in a lab in Glasgow and they told me that to work in a lab in a hospital in microbiology you need to have a biomedical science degree accredited by the IBMS! Otherwise i need to do top-up courses to get registered with the HCPC. can anyone who has done an unaccredited degree tell me how long the top up courses were, where you can get jobs, is it better to to accredited degrees? I had my heart set on going to Dundee uni but they don’t do an accredited degree. I read that you can have an unaccredited degree evaluated by the HCPC to get registered but if they don’t approve, you need the top up courses. I NEED HELP
I am a Biomedical Scientist in Microbiology. Doing a Microbiology degree will get you nowhere as it definitely will not be IBMS accredited. The purpose of the accreditation is so that when somebody qualifies as a HCPC registered Biomedical Scientist, at entry-level, they are qualified to begin working in any discipline. Specialisation can then occur.
Choosing to do a course knowing you need top-up modules is nothing short of madness. Not only will it cost you time, it will also cost you additional money.
