From Aristotle to David Livingstone to Jane Goodall to Edwin Hubble to Stephen Hawking and many others, famous people in science and medicine include doctors, politicians, researchers and more. They have all accomplished extraordinary feats. Look at Bill Gates and how his software has changed the face of medicine. His Windows-based computers are used as filing cabinets for critical medical data. Dr David Baltimore, chairman of the American Association for the Advancement of Science won a Nobel prize for his study of retroviruses. Even Dr Mehmet Oz, cardiothoracic surgeon and TV personality brings health facts to people in a light-hearted way.

Do you want to conduct research to identify problems? If you also want to do a master’s in science degree and make a world of difference to the world, there are excellent universities which offer these courses. A master’s degree is an academic degree obtained in a higher postgraduate education. A master’s degree is a specialised graduate programme which can take about 2 years to complete and is about getting practical knowledge . A bachelor’s degree is required for admission to a master’s programme and students work on the skills they’ve achieved with their bachelor’s programmes. Master’s courses, however, cover the field in much more depth.

They’re Problem Solvers

A Master of Science degree is a pre-requisite for a doctoral degree, and this is the route many famous people in science and medicine have taken. These people have all achieved exceptional undergraduate records and have no doubt achieved well in physics and mathematics. Some are forensic scientists, some are analytical chemists, toxicologists and some are physicians. Everyday skills are also achieved and people like Jane Goodall and Stephen Hawking have independent thinking- and problem-solving skills. Known as problem solvers, they know how to work in a team as well as individually, and have all the skills to do desk work and field work, working indoors and out.
