Laboratory medicine teaches you about pathology (the origin, nature and course of disease) and the diagnosis of disease.
If you're seeking a challenging career as a professional medical scientist, this course offers exciting opportunities.
Your first year is interprofessional and taken with students from other health sciences degrees.
The second year expands your knowledge of the cellular and tissue aspects of pathology, and the individual disciplines of laboratory medicine.
In your third and fourth years, you gain extensive field experience and focus on three of the following major disciplines: clinical biochemistry, diagnostic cytology, haematology and blood transfusion science, histopathology, immunology, and medical microbiology.
High achieving students may complete an additional honours year enabling them to undertake their own significant research project.
