The course provides specialist training in medical bioscience with a focus on molecular diagnostics and biotechnology. Students study a wide range of topics including anatomy, biochemistry, cellular metabolism, immunology, medical microbiology, human physiology, pharmacology and pathology. The program offers a regionally appropriate perspective relevant to the local geographical and healthcare context; this is primarily achieved by the inclusion of suitable examples and case studies. An applied research project is available as an elective unit, enabling qualified students to undertake meaningful research and further develop technical skills.
These course outcomes are aligned with the [http://opvclt.monash.edu.au/curriculum-by-design/aligning-course-outcomes-with-aqf-bologna.htmlhttp://opvclt.monash.edu.au/curriculum-by-design/aligning-course-outcomes-with-aqf-bologna.html (http://opvclt.monash.edu.au/curriculum-by-design/aligning-course-outcomes-with-aqf-bologna.html)[Australian Qualifications Framework level 7, the Bologna Cycle 1 and Monash Graduate Attributes].
Upon completion of this course, students will have knowledge of science across a range of disciplines, with a high level of understanding and appreciation in a broad spectrum of areas relating to medical bioscience Students will have developed quantitative and qualitative research skills and will have an understanding of the importance of an ethical base for scientific research and development activity particularly in the context of areas such as bioengineering and human health.
Students must complete the mathematics/statistics requirement at stage one before enrolling in level two science units.
Students must complete the equivalent of six weeks of professional training via an approved placement in a clinical or medical laboratory or community health organisation in order to complete the requirements for this course.
This course consists of core and elective units.
Students must complete:
(a.) the following units:
(b.) at least four* of:
(c.) additional elective units chosen from any faculty, including units offered for other science courses, to take the total credit points to 144.
The level one chemistry, psychology and physiology units must be chosen from those three areas of study for the campus on which the student is enrolled and can be found in the section Science areas of study and sequencesScience areas of study and sequences (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/2014handbooks/undergrad/sci-01a.html) in this Handbook.
When selecting elective units, these can be identified using the browse units toolbrowse units tool (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/units/search) and indexes of unitsindexes of units (http://www.monash.edu.au/pubs/handbooks/units/) in the current edition of the Handbook. The level of the unit is indicated by the first number in the unit code; undergraduate units are those that commence with the numbers 1-3. Note: Some non-science units may require permission from the owning faculty.
Note: Students must complete:
* Students at Gippsland campus can select a variation on some of the second and third year units and should seek advice from their campus before re-enrolling.
