Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Laboratory Medicine)
In-depth theory coupled with recently upgraded laboratory equipment, correlates directly to what is being used in diagnostic laboratories around the country.
From an early age, I was motivated by a passion for researching cures for diseases and improving human life.
RMIT is the only Victorian university that offers all of the major streams and the facilities, demonstrators, teaching staff and overall campus life is second to none.
RMIT ensures graduates are ready for the industry. In-depth theory coupled with recently upgraded laboratory equipment, correlates directly to what is being used in diagnostic laboratories around the country.
The highlight of the course was the professional practice year where I was fortunate to work in anatomical pathology at the Alfred Hospital.
Being able to apply classroom knowledge and practice in real life, making a difference to real cases gave me great satisfaction. I also made life-long connections important for being active in the industry.
In my final semester, I undertook a group project on ISH studies, a growing field with so many diseases being diagnosed and managed more effectively. The support staff at RMIT and the resources available in the lab meant we gained hands-on experience and the project was enjoyable.
My dream job is to be a medical scientist working at the frontline of cutting-edge technology.
