Bachelor of Biomedical ScienceProgram details
In this flexible program, you'll develop a broad understanding of human anatomy, physiology and pathology from cellular to systems level.
Biomedical science forms the basis of our understanding of how human and animal bodies function, and the responses of the body to various diseases, exercise, diet, internal disturbances and environmental influences.
It is a broad area of science that is all about understanding the human body and how it interacts with disease - how it occurs, what happens and how we can control, cure and prevent it. Biomedical sciences involve an understanding of anatomy and human physiology as well as biochemistry.
In addition to a fundamental understanding of biomedical sciences you’ll have the opportunity to select specialist electives in your final year. You will also gain an understanding of the research process and experience with the modern technologies used in biomedical research.
The program is an ideal preparation for graduate entry into health sciences programs such as medicine, physiotherapy, and dentistry, allowing you to meet all necessary prerequisites.
There are opportunities within the program for study abroad or to obtain international experience.
