MAJ01105 Medical Science

This major focuses on human anatomy and physiology, and provides students with knowledge of the structure, function and control of the body system as well as the aetiology and pathophysiology of disease. It combines a solid grounding in key medical sciences with flexible options for specialisation.

Core study areas include anatomy and physiology, human cell biology, human pathophysiology, medical devices and diagnostics, metabolic biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience and pharmacology.

Students obtain a solid background in the medical sciences and practical experimentation. The major also provides the foundation knowledge and skills for students who wish to go on to postgraduate programs such as medicine, biomedical engineering, nutrition and dietetics, complementary medicine, public health and health administration.
