What will I learn?
Formerly known as The Bachelor of Biomedical Science, the newly titled Bachelor of Laboratory Medicine is the perfect degree for anyone looking to work in specialised medical or pathology laboratories. This degree is professionally accredited by the Australian Institute of Medical Scientists (AIMS), so employers will recognise that graduates from the course have been specifically trained for the industry - and are ready to be employed as medical scientists.
The three and half year course consists of six semesters of on-campus study, plus a seventh semester of clinical placement in an accredited lab in Australia. This program is structured to build your knowledge in chemistry, anatomy, physiology, histology, immunology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, haematology, clinical biochemistry and medical microbiology.
With this knowledge, you'll be ready to work in diagnostic pathology or medical research laboratories, and start making your own contributions to the medical science field. The Bachelor of Laboratory Medicine is designed to prepare students to work in specialised medical and pathology laboratories that provide diagnostic services that are an essential part of the health care system. The tests performed provide valuable information that is used in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Many graduates continue into postgraduate study and conduct research in the areas of molecular biology, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology and haematology.
Students will gain knowledge and a variety of skills in professional areas such as: clinical chemistry, endocrinology, haematology, blood transfusion science, histopathology, microbiology, human molecular biology, and immunology.
On graduation you will be ready to undertake an exciting career at the forefront of laboratory medicine. The opportunities are broad, including roles with diagnostic pathology labs both public and private facilities, or within the medical research field. This degree can also be used to launch a career in medical research, veterinary laboratories, diagnostic and pharmaceutical companies or health management.
