Also how do you define medical science vs life science - did you mean clinical vs non-clinical or something else.
I have a BSc in human anatomy and physiology, a Ph.D. in biomaterials science and work as a researcher for a bio-pharma company developing drugs for bone diseases. I do not have any clinical training am I life scientist or a medical scientist ?
By the way I would recommend Dentistry as the best clinical career.

You are welcome to decide by yourself.
But, this scheme will work good for me.
MD, Physician -> see patients often -> doing research = medical scientist
BSc, P.Hd. -> no clinical activity -> doing research = life scientist

Anybody are welcome to answer:
- Students from they prospective;
- Teachers (Professors) from they prospective.
