What will I learn?
The Honours program in Medical Research is designed to provide students with a firm foundation for postgraduate study in Medical Research. For students not wishing to progress further, the opportunity to undertake an in-depth research project will provide an important understanding of the processes of medical research. As well as the major research project students are required to investigate and make presentations on an area unrelated to their research topic, to provide a broader understanding of important issues in contemporary biomedical research.
The Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) prepares students for a range of careers in biomedical research. By providing a year's training in research, it aims to give students a competitive edge in post-graduate study or seeking employment in biomedical research laboratories.
Graduates are considered research professionals and can expect to find employment in a range of areas including the pharmaceutical, pathology and biomedical industries, biotechnology companies, research institutes, hospitals and universities at both State and Commonwealth levels. They will also be well prepared for more advanced postgraduate study in a range of Medical Research areas, including research based PhD and MSc degrees.
While there is no professional recognition, students will gain skills to allow them to move into research related areas.
