Biomedical Science at Deakin covers the science underpinning medical applications, from basic biology to specific disease processes to provide you with a thorough understanding of human biology and health, with an emphasis on causes, diagnosis and treatment of disease at the molecular, cellular and system levels. The Bachelor of Biomedical Science is a flexible and topical program, and our multidisciplinary approach enables you to learn about your chosen field of study from both scientific and health perspectives. Throughout the course you'll gain relevant and wide-ranging practical experience in the laboratory to ensure you graduate with both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required across a diverse range of careers. You also have the opportunity to participate in a global science placement overseas and to apply for an Industry-Based Learning placement. Placement opportunities enable you to apply knowledge gained in your course, experience workplace culture and practices, explore career options, and develop a professional network before you graduate.

Structure
