Why study the Bachelor of Biomedical Science?

Biomedical scientists provide the foundation of modern healthcare and assist in developing treatments for diseases. From cancer screening, diagnosis of HIV, design of new drugs, food poisoning and infection control, biomedical scientists are helping to make incredible advances in modern medical science. Working in partnership with doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals, they carry out clinical tests, evaluate the effectiveness of treatment, and research the causes and cures for disease. By understanding how the human body works and what goes wrong in disease, biomedical scientists apply their knowledge to develop new treatments.

This program will provide you with both the breadth and the depth of modern biomedical science. Learn from our researchers who are leaders in this area and benefit from their latest knowledge of biomedical science developments. By integrating your study across the various different discipline areas in the biomedical sciences, you will graduate with a well-grounded and wide range of knowledge in biomedical science and enter a rewarding career in modern biomedical science. You can also use this program as a pathway to study medicine or allied health programs.

What you can study

Your courses will cover the broad areas of molecular and cellular biology (biochemistry and molecular biology, human genetics, developmental biology and immunology and infectious diseases) through to body systems (physiology, neuroscience, anatomy and pharmacology). You will have the opportunity to specialise in one or more of these areas in your third year if you wish. You will learn the scientific process through activities ranging from experimental design and hands-on experiments to computer modelling.

For more information on what you can study, please visit the Bachelor of Biomedical Science Study Planner.
