Medical Scientist Job Description

Medical scientists run trial procedures on volunteer test groups or individual subjects to see how drugs interact with the patients. They work in settings like hospitals, clinics and laboratories. These conditions are usually safe, but sometimes they have to work with dangerous substances and in those cases medical scientists carefully follow all the necessary safety procedures. Normal 40-hour week hours are common for this position, but odd and longer hours are typical when it comes to long research projects.

Job Duties

The purpose of a medical scientist' job duties is to discover new methods of enhancing human health. The end result of these procedures and research is to come up with new treatment options, drugs and vaccines. Medial scientists perform research on specimens, such as bacteria and viruses, then regularly perform reviews, clinical investigations and write technical reports during this research process.

Medical scientists that run a clinical trial have to interview patients and go through their medical histories. Afterwards, they decide which patients go into what testing group. One group is typically offered the trial medication while the other is offered a placebo; however, this is not always the case and different groups are offered different samples of medication. After that step is completed, the medical scientist observes any change in their health and behavior, then reports it.
