The work of a forensic scientist has much more practical element. This is due to the fact that it is partly carried out in the field, at the crime scene. It is there that the forensic scientist must find and secure for further examination any traces that may indicate the perpetrator of the crime or help determine the causes and the exact course of the entire event.

In the work of a forensic scientist, the latest technical achievements, which are used in the analysis of collected traces, play a crucial role.

Pathologists are doctors who diagnose disease by examining cells and tissue samples, and sometimes through performing autopsies. The profession of the pathologist is often associated with fiction depicted in detective stories. However, in real life, some people face such work daily. In the work of the pathologist, medicine is in the foreground. Within it, all tasks are performed. In the medical dictionary, this profession is assigned to explaining diseases. In fact, however, the pathologist meets many other tasks. Among them are:

  • disease analysis

  • explaining the causes of death

  • examination of the corpse

  • analysis of mechanisms of disease and pathology development

  • study of immune system disorders

The work of a pathologist is one of the heavier and unpleasant. In the daily study of diseases, there are also death tests. This is associated with radical views. It would help if you had a strong psyche to face the body distribution, which until now was only visible in the movies. Besides, you'll need to register with the General Medical Council. Average salary a year is £27,146 Starter to £105,042 Experienced.
