Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science

Griffith University

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, students will develop the knowledge and skills to work as a medical scientist. In their first year, they will take courses in chemistry, cell biology, anatomy and physiology. They will learn about the body's structure, how it functions under normal circumstances and general health challenges. In their second year, they will start to focus on specialist courses in medical laboratory science and learn how the body functions under diseased conditions. In their third year, they will gain more in-depth knowledge of medical laboratory science and undertake full-time clinical placements in each of the areas of medical science.
