Presentación

Initially you will study the important fundamental sciences, including biochemistry, cell biology and human physiology and anatomy. You will develop your understanding of disease processes and the biology of the associated sub-cellular changes, combined with the principles of laboratory procedures used to aid diagnosis. You will also study immunology, molecular biology and genetics within the context of human health and disease processes.

In Years 2 and 3 you will focus on the study of the complex nature of disease as it affects particular physiological systems. The study of disease processes centres on underlying physiological mechanisms and the laboratory procedures that are used in haematology, clinical chemistry, cellular pathology and medical microbiology to diagnose and monitor disease. A major research project will enable you to develop the skills required for genuine scientific inquiry.

Objetivos

Biomedical science is concerned with the detailed study of the human body, both in health and disease, with emphasis on the diagnosis and understanding of disease states and the mechanisms involved. This course has been designed to prepare scientists for careers in medical diagnostic, pharmaceutical and research environments, in hospitals, universities and research institutes, and pharmaceutical companies. It provides you with a thorough education in the disciplines required to understand and investigate disease, and enables you to develop your career in a variety of pathways in biomedical sciences.
