Biomedical science helps society through applying new scientific knowledge to medicine and healthcare. In this degree, you will gain an understanding of health and the methods for diagnosing and treating disease.
You will receive excellent training for entry into the Doctor of Medicine (5099)*. You will develop knowledge and skills in the biological sciences and clinical sciences and understand how they can be applied to medicine, biomedical research and healthcare services.
In your first year, you will be introduced to the basic sciences underpinning biomedical science. In your second and third years, you will explore more advanced aspects of the biomedical and clinical sciences, including genetics, biochemistry, cell biology, anatomy, physiology, immunology, microbiology, infectious disease, pharmacology and neuroscience. You will learn through hands-on, laboratory-based training in the biomedical sciences.
* The Doctor of Medicine is an AQF Level 9 Masters Extended degree.
The Bachelor of Biomedical Science is offered full-time on-campus at the Gold Coast campus.
As a full-time student you will generally attend 14-18 hours of scheduled classes per week throughout the trimester. Classes may be scheduled during the day and evening throughout the week.
Note: The Trimester 2 intake for this program will require students to undertake compulsory study in Trimester 3 in Year 1 of the program.

The student may then apply for a Commonwealth supported place at the next admission period provided that the student satisfies the conditions for transfer from a domestic fee-paying place to a Commonwealth supported place as set out in the Undergraduate Programs Admission Policy.
If a postgraduate student obtains permanent resident status in Australia after commencing study in a program, and the student can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which they are enrolled), the student will automatically be considered for a Commonwealth supported place subject to availability.
If a research student obtains permanent resident status in Australia after commencing study in a program, and the student can provide evidence of permanent resident status prior to the census date (of the trimester in which they are enrolled), the student will automatically be considered for a Commonwealth Government Research Training Program (RTP) Fee Offset or a domestic fee-paying place as applicable for the program.
