What is biomedical science?
Biomedical science uses the range of modern bioscience disciplines in the understanding of human health and disease. Biomedical science, therefore, helps society through the application of new scientific knowledge to the practice of medicine and health care.
Biomedical scientists carry out a range of laboratory and scientific tests to support the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They require an understanding of:
- medical biochemistry
- cell and molecular biology
- infectious diseases
Why study a Bachelor of Biomedical Science?
You’ll gain an understanding of health and the methods for diagnosis and treatment of disease by studying the fundamental biomedical sciences.
This challenging program provides excellent training for entry into the Doctor of Medicine. You’ll develop knowledge and skills in the biological and clinical sciences and understand their application to medicine, biomedical research and healthcare services.
If you are looking to get a head start to a career in medical research we also offer a biomedical science degree with honours and in accelerated mode. This degree will provide you with advanced research training as you undertake your own research project under the guidance of an academic staff mentor.
