biomedical scientists vs biochemistsWatch
Also does anyone know the likeliness of getting a job if you do either of these degrees?
Healthcare Science very similar but includes clinical work placement so you come out after graduation and can start working for NHS immediately
"Biomedical science focuses on how cells, organs and systems function in the human body"
A biomed programme may include biochemistry module or two and will have biochem interwoven throughout; biochemistry is also specialisation you can go into as biomedical scientist working in healthcare
Biochemistry has less focus on clinical/medical applications and is more chemistry heavy, useful to think of as chemistry of biological molecules and processes
"Biochemistry is the use of molecular methods to investigate, explain and manipulate biological processes."
There is lots of overlap between these disciplines but some key differences
if you have any questions please let me know,
There's not really a role of "Biochemist", within the NHS anyway. In the private sector people call themselves what they want.
You can be a Biomedical Scientist in Biochemistry. You can be a Clinical Scientist in Biochemistry. Most hospitals have a Biochemistry department, if they don't then they have one nearby.
