What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Medical Science is designed for careers in medical and health-related sciences. It aims to produce professional medical scientists with highly adaptable and practical scientific skills accompanied by a thorough grounding in theory. It specialises in the human body's structure, function and disease processes at the cellular and whole organ level.

Students gain a good understanding of the human body's structure, function and disease processes at the cellular and whole organ level. The course provides the foundation knowledge and skills for students who wish to go on to postgraduate programs such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, public health and health administration. Pharmaceutical companies look to medical science graduates to work in areas such as drug registration and clinical trials.

This can be in the form of a specialised 24-credit-point sub-major or by a varied selection of subjects.

Careers
