7. Forensic Scientist

Forensic scientists do more than investigate DNA left on at the scene of a crime. These problem-solvers are also found in the field of healthcare, interpreting medical facts and presenting them to courts, or studying the human body to establish time of death. There are many facets of forensic science, including:

• Forensic Medicine
• Forensic Pathology
• Forensic Toxicology
• Forensic Pathology
• Forensic Anthropology
• Forensic Serology
• Forensic Odontology

The path to forensic science in healthcare involves at least two years as an intern after medical school, and possibly a master’s degree in your area of specialization. An advanced degree is mandatory. Employment is expected to grow 12% by 2016. Forensic scientists who work for the government should expect favorable employment prospects because of job growth that is much faster than average.
