I am thinking about applying for a role as a clinical scientist. I dont see any reference to specific qualifications, however they refer to bands. I have a degree and PhD. The role is in Scotland. Can anyone help?
I read somewhere that you didn't only have to work in hospitals, that some clinical laboratory scientists do jobs such as forensic science.
Also, if I want to get a degree in Clinical Laboratory Science, would I be eligible for that program if I have a bachelor's in Secondary Science Education with a concentration in either biology or physics???
Just wondering how some actual clinical lab scientists like their job. Seems like it takes a whole lot of knowledge for a small pay. But it seems like it would be a good thing to get into before medical school. Any suggestions medical people?
I just moved to California after finishing my Biology degree and I'm having trouble finding a job that doesn't require a license to be a clinical laboratory scientist. Is it possible to get this license without a degree in that specifically? I suspect most of my curriculum would overlap with this but I do not have the time or money to go back to school for this and I really need to get a job in my field.
Thanks for any help or advice!
Hi, I'm in my second year in college and I'm planning in getting a molecular biology degree. I'm wondering if I can become a clinical lab scientist or medical technologist with a molecular or cell biology degree. Do you know any other types of prospective careers with a biology degree?
What do clinical laboratory scientists/medical technologists wear to work? (I know it may be a silly question, but a girl's gotta know!) Are you a c.l. scientist? Do you like your job? Any tips for a CLS major? Thanks!
Hi, I'm still a junior in high school, but I want to start considering some possible future career choices. I love chemistry, but I also like the medical field... What are some good, stable jobs that applies to that? I am considering pharmacist, but it seems a bit monotonous/depressing? Correct me if I am wrong! Also my mom is a clinical laboratory scientist, which also applies. Can any of you suggest more?
I just graduated with my bachelors degree in biology and now im looking for a job. I see that clinical laboratory scientist make good money and i am also interested in the duties that they do.

I am a biochemstry major at a big 10 university and i was wondering which job is better, clinical laboratory scientist/medical technilogist or a biology/biochemstry degree. I don't think i will have good enough gpa to continue to medical school or grad school. Is it hard finding job when you are only holding a biochemstry degree? Is it easier to find jobs with a clinical laboratory degree? which pays better? Which one is more in demand? Can someone help me answer this simple questions?
I'm majoring in clinical laboratory science, sometimes correlated to medical technology. What kind of work will I be doing with this degree. What all CAN I do?

I'll be attending university this fall and I'm planning on becoming a medical technologist/clinical laboratory scientist. I've been doing my research a little and I know that I need to take a state and national exam and I'm actually supposed to major in clinical-laboratory science but my university doesn't offer that.
If you have any other extra information (such as the working conditions, how flexible the hours are, what they do) please clue me in.
Thank you for your help
I'm currently working on my B.S. in clinical laboratory science. I like to work in a lab and run tests and dislike working with the general public. Should I change my major to something else? How is the pay? the hours?
I am currently considering going into this field and I was wondering if there are any clinical laboratory scientists out there to answer some of my questions.
First, what does the future hold for clinical laboratory scientists?
Will CLS be in demand in the next 20 years?
For those who are currently Clinical Laboratory Scientists, do you regret going into this field?
What are the pros and cons in working as a CLS?
I’ve heard you can specialize in a much more specific portion of CLS like hematology, microbiology, cytology, etc.. If so what is the most sought after specialty by companies/hospitals?
What was your starting salary?
And what does your salary look like now after x months/years of experience?
Can a current clinical laboratory scientist please answer these questions for me? I’d be eternally grateful if you could take the time to answer these questions.
I want to be in the medical field. However, I have a hard time finishing paperwork and concentrating on it. I was thinking about becoming a clinical lab scientist or medical lab tech. Do they require you to do a lot of charting like a nurse.
Being laid off recently in my mid age, I am interested in applying for a CLS licensing exam. I believe I have the required coursework done (I have a PhD degree in physiology, and was working in research labs which were not of clinical studies but of basic biological sciences). I read the description that I need to have a year of trainee experience to be qualified before I can take the exam. Is that correct? I only saw job postings for CLS but not for trainees. How do I get the trainee job? Thank you.
I'm looking into this career so any information you have on it would be awesome!!
Such as if how much schooling you need, what you do everyday, pay, environment, and job growth.
Thanks so much! =)
I know that they may work under a pathologist as their boss, but I mean the job on a professional level.
Are they considered independent professionals, or are they more like nurses or PA's, where they are usually under a doctor's command?
I will be getting my B.S in biomedical sciences in a year and I was wondering are there any jobs available for undergraduate biology students without any job experience. If i do later decide to go into medical college which medical colleges are easiest to get into?
I want to become a Medical Scientist, but there are so many similiar terms that I am confused. Could you please clear this up for me?
