Hi, If someone has a Phd in biomedicine and would like to have a career as a forensic scientist, would you advise them to return to school to get a Masters in forensic science, or is there a more efficient may to go about this?

Is it the norm to apply for a job with no forensic science background and then receive the training on the job? Thank you. John
