Overview

Bachelor of Science (Medical Science)

Innovative approaches to health mean the broad medical and health sciences sectors are expanding, and graduates are in demand. 

Whether you want to join the leading edge of medical research or become a doctor or dentist with further study, the Bachelor of Science (Medical Science) will give you the essential foundation for a rewarding career in healthcare or research.  

In this three-year course, you will develop knowledge of the structure and function of the human body, from the molecular level through to whole systems.

It will give you an excellent foundation for the University of Sydney's graduate medicine or dentistry programs, or you may wish to launch straight into graduate research in medical science.

You will cover the basic sciences in your first year: chemistry, biology and mathematics, plus electives. 

These units will give you the fundamental knowledge needed for the clinical subjects you will undertake in your second and third years.

In the second year, you will complete core medical science units in physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, anatomy, immunobiology and pathology. 

You will also be able to take science or non-science electives. In the third year, you will choose from medical science units and complete an interdisciplinary capstone project.

After completing this course, you will have the ideal base for research in medical science.

 If you plan a research career, you will need to consider an advanced coursework pathway or honours, followed by research in a PhD program.

You may select your second major from those offered in the area of human health, the shared pool of majors or from those offered in the Bachelor of Science, which is offered through the Faculty of Science academic schools:

  • School of Chemistry
  • School of Geosciences (including Geography and Geology and Geophysics)
  • School of History and Philosophy of Science
  • School of Life and Environmental Science (including Animal Science, Biology, Ecology, Environment and Food Science)
  • School of Mathematics and Statistics (including Data Science)
  • School of Physics
  • School of Psychology
