Hello there,

So, I have just graduated with 2:1 Biomedical Sciences with science communications honours from UoD. Although my honours project was a sci comms project, I am desperately looking for a position in a laboratory where I can build on my experience and career in the biomedical sphere.

As far as my CV goes I have quite a lot of things on there but nothing that is laboratory relevant other than my hard work in my modules of the first 3 years.

Any help or advice would be really welcome. I'd also like to mention that I am in Scotland but I'll be happy to work UK wide for a good role.

Thank you so much,

Iain

You need to be more specific. There are a variety of types of laboratory.

I appreciate your reply, thank you! So I am looking ideally for clinical laboratories, such as hospital settings. I have a strong biomedical/physiological and neuroscience background so anything that can complement this and perhaps gain me some contact with patients as well would be ideal. Thank you for sharing any insights.

Hi there,

No, unfortunately it is not. And I am in the process of getting in touch with them to try and seek top-up modules etc to get the necessary validation for IBMS.

The only clinical laboratory experience you're going to get is initially as a Medical Laboratory Assistant, and then you'll be able to progress to an Associate Practitioner. Once you have the laboratory experience, if you do manage to get the IBMS to grant accreditation (or complete top-up modules) then you'll be able to seek registration with the HCPC as a Biomedical Scientist via a Trainee job.
