Medical Biology

What career paths are available after studying a Medical Biology course?

Medical biology careers span the spectrum of medical sciences. Since the subject area is so broad in scope, the available career options are similarly vast. Whether your focus is on disease diagnosis and treatment or developing a new medicine, medical biology careers often involve working in laboratories, and understanding how to use laboratory equipment is crucial.

Many Medical Biology graduates progress to employment in public and private settings, depending on their particular interests within the Medical Biology sector. You may progress to NHS Teaching and education, Medical administration, Health service management, Science writing, Health promotion, Medicine, Research and development, Medical sales, Intellectual property, Financial analysis, Genetics, Health education, Public relations Biomaterial Research and Development, postgraduate study and more! There are further details of career prospects on the course page, and tutors are available to advise you by email or chat services. We do hold remote meetings with applicants to deliver good advice and guidance to help you make this career decision.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Medical Biology Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Medical Biology subject area.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
