Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

Griffith University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00233E

Medical scientists perform diagnostic tests of blood, tissues and other bodily fluids to help doctors diagnose diseases such as glandular fever, diabetes, swine flu and even cancer. Medical scientists can also recommend treatment options and help manage clinical trials. In this degree, you will develop the knowledge and skills to work as a medical scientist. In your first year, you will take courses in chemistry, cell biology, anatomy and physiology. You will learn about the body's structure, how it functions under normal circumstances and general health challenges. From your second year, you will start to focus on specialist courses in medical laboratory science and learn how the body functions under diseased conditions. In your third year, you will gain more in-depth knowledge of medical laboratory science and undertake full-time clinical placements in each of the areas of medical science.
