Qualification Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biomedical Science
Duration 3 years full-time or part-time equivalent
Availability Murdoch campus (internal)
Description Biomedical Science applies the principles of cellular and molecular biology to the understanding of normal function and disease in humans.

The Biomedical Science major provides students with an opportunity to focus their training and experience in human and medical biology. It integrates the major themes of biomedical sciences at the molecular, cellular and whole-body level and addresses the remarkable advances being made by biomedical research. Knowledge from the fundamental disciplines of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, histology and cell biology is integrated with, and applied to, knowledge in the paraclinical disciplines of pathology, microbiology, immunology, and molecular genetics, with the option of electives such as parasitology, pharmacology, histopathology and haematology. Teaching of these fundamental subjects is carried out in a systematic way with theoretical instruction backed up with extensive practical laboratory training within each discipline.

The major also prepares students for dealing with the impact and ethics of the scientific approach used in biomedical sciences. The material within this major provides pre- and paraclinical training and is excellent preparation for a career in medical research and related areas, or entry to a graduate medical degree.
Murdoch's Bachelor of Science is a flexible degree which gives you the opportunity to build deep understanding and practical experience as well as to supplement your studies by engaging with industry and the community on relevant problems. You can even undertake studies through another discipline to broaden your understanding of the way in which science operates in relation to social, business, health and policy environments.
Admission Requirements: Onshore course offerings As per normal undergraduate admission requirements.

Equivalent of an Academic IELTS overall score of 6.0 with no band less than 6.0.
Special Requirements Students are required to participate in practical work involving animals and/or fresh tissues from dead animals throughout the major.
Major Learning Outcomes Biomedical Science is concerned with understanding the normal function of the human body, as well as the various disease processes that affect it and how these diseases can be better identified, treated, or even prevented from occurring altogether.

The Biomedical Science major provides well rounded training across the disciplines of physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, immunology and pathology and integrates these at the molecular, cellular, and organ systems levels. Specific research skills units enable students to develop expertise in experimental design, critical analytical thinking and scientific communication. At third year level, a dedicated capstone unit provides students with a real world appreciation of the philosophies, strategies, and tools used in biomedical research to combat disease. Students can broaden their scientific knowledge base further by including discipline areas such as parasitology, pharmacology and anatomy. An additional Honours year is available on a competitive basis to students who wish to undertake a supervised medical research project.

The overall aim of this major is to train a versatile biomedical scientist with a broad range of professional, problem solving and personal skills who will find employment in the global research, diagnostic and medical biotechnology industries. Biomedical Science is also excellent preparation for entry into related courses such as Medicine.
