The Biomedical Scientist Trailblazer Group is delighted to announce that the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) has approved the Level 6 Biomedical Scientist (Integrated Degree) apprenticeship standard for delivery.
Biomedical Scientists carry out a range of laboratory and scientific tests to support the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They investigate a range of medical conditions, including for example cancer, diabetes, blood disorders (eg anaemia), meningitis and hepatitis. Biomedical scientists perform a key role in screening for hereditary and acquired diseases, identifying those caused by bacteria and viruses and monitoring the effects of medication and other treatments.
The funding band is £27,000.
