You will be able to choose electives to suit your interests. All areas provide a strong foundation for progression into research and other health-related careers.
You will study several general science subjects to provide you with a sound scientific base. This will include chemistry and biochemistry, cell biology and anatomy and physiology. You will be introduced to the foundations of human health and begin developing skills in communication and professional practice.
This first year gives you the skills to pursue a broad range of biomedical science careers and prepares you to transfer to other programs offered by the School of Health and Biomedical Sciences.
You will study genetics, molecular biology, pharmacology and toxicology. Develop a strong understanding of the origins and mechanisms of disease at the cellular, tissue,organ and systems level in human pathophysiology. You may select your area of interest from either Clinical Health and Disease or Medical Biotechnology.
You will study current health and disease topics in-depth with current medical research academics and learn how to understand, interpret and apply research-based knowledge to the development of solutions to health and medical problems.
In your final year a capstone experience will give you the opportunity to integrate, critically reflect on and consolidate what you have learnt in your program and enable you to engage in an immersive work placement or research experience to put theory into professional practice.
