Overview

Graduates of this Bachelor of Biomedical Science from Australian Catholic University need to demonstrate a well-developed understanding of the biomedical science sub-disciplines to enable them to undertake values driven problem solving. 

Application of their knowledge, understanding and skills to local and global issues must attend to both First Peoples and Western perspectives, and these aspects are embedded within specified biomedical science units in all years. 

Employers are seeking students with recognised transferable skills (e.g. team work, communication skills, problem-solving ability, and care for others) and the Biomedical Science degree at ACU integrates development of these skills into its units, driving the development of graduates with a high emotional intelligence, adaptability and resilience.

Overall, the Bachelor of Biomedical Science aims to prepare ethical graduates with a concern for the common good, who are able to apply a broad and coherent body of knowledge to undertake professional work in a range of biomedical science contexts and as a basis for life-long learning. These graduates will often collaborate within health care teams to create novel solutions to global and national health challenges.

Career

Examples include entry level roles in pharmaceutical and medical technology industries; with further workplace training and experience this degree may lead to roles in marketing, medical, legal, research and quality assurance. Graduates might work in research roles in Universities, hospitals or the public health sector. Graduates could pursue careers in science communication, or may undertake further study in post graduate health programs or research.
