What is Biomedicine?
Biomedicine is a field of medical science in which professionals apply biological and physiological principles to clinical research and practice.
A career in biomedicine is typically within the professional health care or pharmaceutical industry. For those not interested in Clinical careers, there are many opportunities for those with a biomedicine background within policy and research, amongst a range of other fields.

A common first step in the Medicine pathway is undertaking an undergraduate Biomedicine or Science degree.
Fourth Year Programs
After completing an undergraduate program, some students elect to continue on to a year of honours, especially if they are interested in pursuing medical academic research.
For those who choose to pursue a fourth year, finding a course that accommodates their grades and location preferences can be tough.
For those individuals who completed a Biomedicine, Science or related degree, in order to continue into specific fields such as Audiology, Embryology or Research, a postgraduate degree is commonly required.
Some individuals who completed an undergraduate or fourth-year program, yet decided not to continue on a direct Biomedicine pathway, often pursue alternative careers.
Finding a suitable program that suits your needs requires research and time. We have done that work for you!
