Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This program will prepare students for entry into postgraduate medical courses. As such, it will cover necessary physiology, anatomy and biochemistry pre-requisites, as well as up to date information on disease and medical applications. Students will also gain a solid foundation in designing and critically analysing research methodologies and findings, with a particular emphasis on nutrition and exercise interventions in medicine. Opportunities to undertake a research project will provide a platform to undertake a research degree. The application of the fundamentals of medical techniques to a range of practical scenarios including workplaces and community settings will offer students a blend of theoretical and experiential learning.
