The Biomedicine degree at The University of Melbourne includes core subjects and 15 majors. But you don’t need to select your major on day one.
In the first year, you’ll be able to explore a range of subject areas you’re interested in, so when choosing your major, you’ll be well-informed.
This provides the foundations for a broad range of professional health pathways.
Core second and third-year subjects - available only to you as a Biomedicine student.
The two second-year integrated subjects emphasise the relationships between different biomedical disciplines – it’s about enhancing your understanding of the human body in its full complexity.
In the third year, the core subjects take on a more clinical (Molecules to Malady) or Population (Frontiers in Biomedicine) focus, tying all the elements of your Biomedicine journey together.
The Bachelor of Biomedicine is ideal preparation for a career in medicine and professional health.
While one-third of the graduates enter this university's Doctor of Medicine (MD) program – representing over half of the domestic intake for the MD – even more choose another graduate course at Melbourne.
