Hi there,

The potential career opportunities for biomedical scientists are quite diverse from a science writer to a toxicologist, an extensive list can be found on the prospects website- https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...dical-sciences. Regarding particular placements I would get into contact with your University as many of them offer help with applying to placements and will have a database on which ones you will apply too. To become a biomedical scientist in the NHS you need to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council more details about to attain this can be found on the NHS careers website- https://www.healthcareers.nhs.uk/exp...edical-science. This website also discusses the Institute of Biomedical Science that offer services to help with professional development and training.


I hope this helps

Biomedical Scientist's don't exist in the sectors you state. Only somebody registered with the HCPC as one can legally refer as themselves as one, otherwise they would be committing a criminal offence.

All of the ones you've stated, you wouldn't be a BMS, and they wouldn't require registration with the HCPC to be a 'Science Writer' or Toxicologist.
