The honours degree builds on the knowledge gained in the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. It is designed to develop students' research skills, allow participants to learn specific techniques and gain a broader understanding of the biomedical sciences. The program consists of a significant research project and a compulsory coursework component
Students can undertake projects at the
- School of Biomedical Sciences within
- The Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology
- The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
- The Department of Microbiology
- The Department of Pharmacology
- The Department of Physiology
- School of Psychological Sciences (Clayton)
- Central Clinical School (Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct)
- School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health (Monash Medical Centre)
- Australian Regenerative Medicine Institute (Clayton)
Students can undertake their research project within the faculty as listed above, or at one of the affiliated institutes such as
- Hudson (formerly MIMR-PHI Institute of Medical Research)
- Baker Research Institute
- Burnet Institute
Prospective students may down-load the key research areas booklet to gain an idea of areas of research available, prospective supervisors and locations. Students are directed to staff at the various locations when choosing a supervisor and project.
Many departments in the Faculty hold Open Days. Students are encouraged to attend these as they disseminate valuable information about research projects and provide a good opportunity to talk directly with scientists. Honours Open days allow students to make links with groups who may have projects of interest. Students are encouraged to contact research staff to explore the possibility of undertaking a project with them.
Be reminded: it is YOUR responsibility to select your supervisor and project. The process takes time so start early.
Students who have degrees in Biomedical Science from other institutions are eligible to apply.
