Course Information

Biomedical science helps society through applying new scientific knowledge to medicine and healthcare. In this degree, you will gain an understanding of health and the methods for diagnosing and treating disease.

You will receive excellent training for entry into the Doctor of Medicine (5099) as well as a sound foundation for a career in biomedical research. You will develop knowledge and skills in the biological sciences and clinical sciences and understand how they can be applied to medicine, biomedical research and healthcare services. This program also provides opportunities for you to articulate into Masters degrees in health professions.

In your first year, you will be introduced to the basic sciences underpinning biomedical science. In your second and third years, you will explore more advanced aspects of the biomedical and clinical sciences, including genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology, immunology, microbiology, infectious disease, pharmacology and neuroscience. You will learn through hands-on, laboratory-based training in the biomedical sciences.

Honours is available through an additional year of study.

* The Doctor of Medicine is an AQF Level 9 Masters Extended degree
