Ready to change the world? Here are some of the amazing jobs you can do with a bachelor’s degree in medical biology.
You can enjoy a number of careers with a biology degree. If you specialise in medical biology, you’ll have the opportunity to contribute to one of the most powerful fields of medicine, changing people’s lives for the better.
Forming a bridge between research and clinical medicine, this subject teaches students the basics of modern healthcare and drug development. From genetics and looking at the causes of diseases like cancer to learning about stem cell biology, this degree will open many doors.
As well as careers in the NHS, here are some of the areas that you could go into after achieving your medical biology degree:
Research is one of the most exciting areas graduates can go into with a medical biology degree. As a medical researcher, you will be contributing to the field of medicine positively, by arming the healthcare industry with much-needed insight into different drugs and treatments.
In this cross-disciplinary field, you’ll work with molecular materials, structures and systems, and find ways to deliver their application to real-word problems. If you want to become a biochemist, you will need further education, and an undergraduate medical biology degree is a great starting point.
Working towards becoming a biotechnologist, epidemiologist or forensic scientist are great directions if you’re interested in genetics. Medical biology provides a fantastic foundation for you to build your skills at a higher level.
Working in pharmaceuticals puts you at the heart of the action. The industry allows you to change people’s lives directly, through the production and distribution of life-saving medicine. Whether you’re researching, developing, manufacturing or marketing, your work will have a huge impact on public health and global outcomes.
Another area you could specialise in is scientific patents, a space that is dedicated to innovation. This places you at the cutting edge of science, and also allows you to be in close proximity to multiple advancements, instead of being tied to one single project.
The University of Bolton’s BSc Hons Medical Biology course is the perfect launching pad for a career in medical sales or marketing. With a good understanding of both research and clinical science, you’ll be able to excel in these areas.
A route that some graduates take is going into writing or teaching positions, as this allows the sharing of ideas and knowledge to continue through the field, and through the generations. Medical writers can earn a competitive wage and it isn’t always necessary to achieve a PhD to become successful.
