Which degree modules for infectious diseasesWatch this thread
Anyone have any advice on which degree and what modules I should be looking at?
From the options you've given, you can probably find your way into infectious diseases (ID) through any of them (biochem probably least directly related). For biomed, you'll probably have a generalist intro to medical science which I guess is good. You can choose ID modules early on (depends on university though) and then be a bit more specialised in your final year project + modules. Microbiology is good too but I don't know much about it.
If you are wanting to be in a hospital/be a ID consultant doctor, you'll have to do medicine (now or after your e.g. biochem/micro degree).
The best thing to do might be to call/email universities you're interested in for advice - or even better, if there is a job you'd like to do in the future, find that person's email and contact them directly for advice - *do not* be shy with this, it's often more useful than you might expect (you can contact multiple people too).
What are your career goals? Do you want to be researcher/professor, lab technician, infectious diseases doctor/researcher?
I’m kinda stuck between biomed and microbiology I think. At different universities both courses have relevant modules. Then I thought maybe I should try to do biomed at an IBMS accredited university.
