Im currently going into my third year (of four, I'm on an integrated masters) of a microbiology degree if you have any question about what it's like!
Also, many medical researchers come from a clinical background, so their primary degree will be in medicine, so an MBChB or MBBS (or equivalent). They then can decide if they want to go into research. Many following this route will enhance their academic profile with an MD or PhD. A good example of a career that follows this route is a surgeon-scientist
I would imagine they could, I’m not too familiar with the MPharm course structure, but in my MSc there was one person with an MPharm and and one with a DPharm. Again I guess it would be a matter of what kind of research you go into. I would imagine drug discovery and clinical trials would be suited to a pharmacist, did you do much work with pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics in your degree?
yooo i want to go into the drug side of medical research but can i do that with an undergraduate degree in pharmacy? i know pharmacology is quite different to pharm, but i want to work in the more scientific research field with a degree in pharmacy can i do that? or do i need to take a postgradute degree in something else?
So I want to become a medical researcher/scientist. What route do I take? I'm stuck between biochemistry, pharmacology, molecular biology and microbiology. Also, what would i do after i get the bachelors degree? Any advice?
Great question. Here at proprep we have a huge library of video tutorials specific for this topic and course as well as example exercises and study guides, all created by professors who have at least 10 years experience.
