Year Three of Program

In Semester 1 you must do Cellular Communication and in Semester 2 you must do Practical Biomedical Sciences.

You then need to select three courses for each of Semesters 1 and 2. We recommend that you take two of the following three courses:

Applied Biochemical Methods
Cardiovascular Biology
Head and Visceral Anatomy.
If you chose two of those three courses, your fourth course can be one of:
Medical Microbiology 1
General Pathology
Gene Technologies

We then recommend 
Neuroscience
Biology of Tissue Growth and Repair
If you choose these courses the fourth can be one of the other three:

Medical Microbiology 2
Integrative Pathology
Bioinformatics **

Student please note that although BIOL2254 - Bioinformatics does not appear in this enrolment program structure students are still able to enrol into the course via the Enrolment Online System by searching for class numbers:

3358 - Semester 1.

3314 - Semester 2.

Students may be required to hold a Working with Children Check and a National Police Check.  If required, this will be advised to students upon entry into the Program.  There are also Compliance requirements to be met which are clearly outlined in the Additional Information section:
