Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi,

    I am currently studying biomedical science and I was just wondering how you apply to be a biomedical scientist in the army and what the chances are of getting a job?

    The course I am on is an IBMS accredited course and I am specialising in haematology and transfusion science in my final year as it is my favourite subject. I should get a 2:1, if I don't mess up in my last semester.
  2. See if your Uni has an UOTC and see what they say?
    Or go along to your local ACIO and they can guide you in the right direction.
  3. ask yourself the main question going through all or heads !! "do the army neeed or have ever needed a biomedical scientist " then quietly disappear and never return ! or is porton down still open and can you volunteer for being experimental cannon fodder- shit i feel another infraction or rops coming on !!!!!
  4. You're ok. Its only the ******* STABS forum.;)

  8. haha idiot of course I am going to go there on MONDAY! I was looking for some info now! Also if you actually read my question you will know that it wouldn't be answered there as they will just say yeah you can apply, but they might not actually take many people from uni's which are not directly linked to the army. So read the question!
  9. To answer your question, yes, the Army will be able to use your skills.

    You DO know how to make a cup of tea, right?

  10. They have taken serving soldiers and paid for them to do a degree in Biomedical Science. The jammy fúckers!
  11. pretty sure the army need people who can give the right blood/platelets to people who suffer from major blood loss and would die without it.
  12. They do need Bio Medical scientists. There's your answer. Now fúck off.
  13. I've never seen a biomedical scientist at a patient's bedside performing a transfusion.

  14. shit !! theres me thinking all the wars were over and we didnt need medics and such !! i thought we just beamed all our injured back to the nhs and forgot about them ! welcome aboard and hope you serve long and hard !
