Discipline of Biomedical Science
The Discipline of Biomedical Science, a Discipline within the School of Medical Sciences, is located on the Cumberland Campus at Lidcombe. The Discipline provides units of study in anatomy, physiology and other sciences for the majority of the undergraduate and some of the postgraduate students enrolled in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Around 2600 hours of teaching per year is undertaken in the Discipline´s teaching laboratories.
An interactive multi-modal Anatomy workshop designed by Assoc. Professor Leslie Nicholson, Dr Darren Reed and Dr Cliffton Chan significantly improved student academic performance. The study has been accepted by the BMC Medical Education journal for publication.
