IBMS Accredited degree courses are designed to ensure students meet HCPC Standards of Proficiency to register as a biomedical scientist
If you want to become a biomedical scientist in the UK, you must complete an IBMS Accredited biomedical science degree programme or equivalent degree apprenticeship and successfully complete the IBMS Registration Training Portfolio in an approved training laboratory.
You will then be issued with a Certificate of Competence from the IBMS allowing you to register as a biomedical scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
IBMS Accredited degrees support you to reach the required academic level to meet HCPC Standards of Proficiency.
Through a combination of academic qualifications and clinical laboratory training, you will receive a wide-ranging, research informed scientific education and develop practical skills and experience that employers value.
And you want to become a HCPC registered biomedical scientist in the UK, it is likely that you will have to undertake additional learning to acquire the level of knowledge required to register to practice.
The exact requirement of additional learning will depend on the content of the non-accredited degree programme that you studied. This normally involves “top-up” modules that you will have to study and pay for at the same time as undertaking your laboratory training.
