So what does a Healthcare Scientists do, exactly?
“Careers in healthcare science are difficult to describe in one sentence. Many jobs are laboratory based and investigate disease, genetic make up, and new scientific treatments. Others involve direct work with patients, for example, measuring the function of a particular organ. And then there are the scientists whose focus is more about engineering, ensuring that medical equipment is working safely or researching new medical technology.
So if you’ve ever been given a new treatment, had a biopsy, an MRI scan or a blood, sight or hearing test, it’s more than likely that a member of the healthcare science team was involved. It’s even possible that the person you thought was a doctor was actually a healthcare scientist. The healthcare science team are involved in 80% of all clinical decisions in the NHS and you’ll find their fingerprints on many of the latest technological advancements in preventing, diagnosing and treating a wide range of medical conditions.”
