The Bachelor of Medical Science has a clear focus on developing your knowledge of the structure and function of the human body, from molecular to whole systems. It is an obvious choice if you wish to pursue graduate research in medical science, or if you wish to undertake the University of Sydney's graduate medicine or dentistry programs. After first completing the Bachelor of Medical Science undergraduate course, you have the opportunity to apply for an honours year which involves research in a specialised area of medical science, subject to eligibility requirements.
Your undergraduate studies will span the basic sciences and the clinical sciences, and you will get hands-on experience in practical classes. After establishing a foundation in chemistry, biology, microbiology, biochemistry, and physics or psychology, you will move on to your prescribed medical science units, which include units in cell structure and function; cardiac, respiratory and renal function; hormones, reproduction and development; disease in society and more.
When you graduate you will be able to pursue honours studies in the medical sciences, or move on to a rewarding career where your broad knowledge of medical science will be an advantage.
