The Bachelor of Biomedicine requires completion of a total of 300 points of study over three years full time, usually comprising four subjects per semester. Alternatively, the course can be completed in six or seven years part time.
The core of the degree builds understanding of the structure and function of the body and consideration of the determinants of health and disease, including genetic and environmental influences.
The integrated core program culminates in final year subjects that deal with contemporary issues in biomedicine and aspects of medical conditions from the molecular and cellular, right up to the population level.
Depth within a particular biomedical discipline is achieved by completing 50 points (4 subjects) in a major at Level 3.
Students also take between 50-75 points from other discipline areas. These 'breadth' subjects are designed to bridge disciplines, sharpening skills of logic, analysis and multidisciplinary problem solving.
