Question about exposure in the field of biomedical engineering

Hi! I am a sophomore at Poolesville High School (magnet school) who is interested in a biomedical career path (still not certain). I was wondering how I can get more exposure in the field--in terms of lab work, research, hands on work, etc.?

Are online courses worth the time?

I'm going to be doing Bsc Biomedical Science in the fall as a freshman. It's a pretty vast field and it's not known to be very prospective right after an undergrad degree. I am planning to do a post-grad degree but I heard online courses in important fields like business and computer science would give me a little edge, job-wise. Is that true? Will they be considered as serious courses (considering I pay for the certificates of course)?

Are internships widely avaliable for students who also have a heavy courseload??

I enjoy hands on activities and feel like getting real time experience especially in the medical field would be exponentially helpful, but I don't want to overload myself with hard classes and that responsibility

Would Biomedical Science or Animal Science benefit me more for my Veterinary Medicine degree?

I am going to college in the fall and I have the option of a biomedical major or an animal science major. I want to work towards a Veterinary Medicine degree after my undergraduate, so I want to make the right decision. After researching this question I keep getting the response that to apply for Vet Med it doesn't really matter what your undergraduate major is, but honestly I would rather not go into my graduate degree blind. I just want to know which one would benefit me more in my studies that way I already have an idea of what is going on in Vet Med. #veterinary #biomedical-science #animal-science #veterinary-medicine

Is there a profession out there that's an equal balance between creative writing/publishing and biomedical science?

I am torn between majoring in English and Biomedical Science/Engineering. I love to write stories and strive to become an editor for a publishing company/fiction author or screenwriter, but I also love genetics and would love to be a genetic engineer and researcher (see the details from my previous question.) My parents don't want me to pursue an English degree because the profession "isn't that lucrative" and I'd spend a long time working my way to steady earnings, but they also want me to find a job doing what I love. They've suggested technical writing, but I fear that technical writing could also mean less creativity when writing instruction manuals or scientific journal articles. Any suggestions or advice from real-world experiences? #creative-writing #technical-writing #writing #news-writing #editor #writing-and-editing #fiction-writing #science-fiction #creative-non-fiction #fiction #copy-editing #publishing #genetics #biomedical-engineering #biomedical-science #career-path #screenwriting #author #creative-writing #double-major #dual-career #multiple-interests #english #communications #grant-writing #proposal-writing #career-path #career-choice #career-decisions

If I get a Bachelor's in biology, can I get a Master's and PhD in biomedical science?

I'm a high school student who wants to be a biomedical researcher, but most of the colleges that I'm looking at only offer biology and not biomedical science as a major. I'm wondering if I can jump to biomedical science in grad school, even though I didn't major in it in undergrad. #biology #research #biomedical #medical-research #biomedical-science #science-phd

What are acceptable undergraduate degrees to have before pursuing a graduate degree in biomedical engineering?

I am interested in pursuing a career in biomedical engineering, specifically research in regenerative medicine. I have received conflicting information on undergraduate degrees in this area. Some sources tell me that I need a biomedical engineering undergraduate degree from a high-ranking institution to get into a strong biomedical engineering graduate program. Other sources tell me that I can get an undergraduate degree from a regional university in an area such as biology or chemistry and have no problem getting into a graduate school with good scores. What is the best advice? #medicine #biomedical-engineering #medicine-research #biomedical-science

What happens in a typical day for a biomedical engineer/researcher?

I am interested in pursuing a career in biomedical engineering, specifically research in regenerative medicine. It seems that most of what I read about biomedical engineering careers is focused more on the mechanical side of the profession rather than the human side. I want to research topics that would help identify disease, cure disease, or offer provide knowledge on how the human body can heal itself. #medicine #biomedical-engineering #medicine-research #biomedical-science
