Every one of us has at least seen a doctor and got a health screening or test for at least once in our lifetime. Aside from the doctor, have you ever notice or wonder what happens behind the laboratory door and who was responsible for assisting your doctor in diagnosing your health condition?
Besides the doctors that provide health care to us, there is a group of people assisting the doctors and finding solutions to health care problems around the world. This group of people includes biomedical scientist, healthcare scientist, microbiologist, medical physicist, technician, and toxicologist. If you want to help save a life, passionate about research, the human physics, and science, but do not have the stomach to become a doctor for reasons of your own, consider the field of Biomedical Sciences.
Biomedical sciences are a set of sciences relating to parts of natural science or formal science, or both, to knowledge, interventions, or technology that are of use in healthcare or public health. It is the foundation of medical healthcare, focusing on how cells, organs, and systems function in the human body. Through biomedical sciences, medical breakthroughs in healthcare were achieved, anything from creating artificial muscles from cells to treat diseases and illnesses, to looking at the brain to understand stress and anxiety. Biomedical scientists have developed new treatments and therapies for human illnesses, diseases, and disabilities.
