If you're fascinated by disease processes and diagnosis, this course will give you the experience and analytical skills you need to succeed in medical diagnosis, medical research and other health-related fields.
Explore medical technology and work in practical laboratories on campus to gain laboratory skills used to analyse, diagnose and research human diseases. You'll examine disease processes and learn the technical skills you need to handle patient material collected in hospitals, doctor's surgeries and even forensic investigations.
By the end of the course you'll be able to perform clinical testing and analyse and report results. Covering human biology, cell and molecular biology, molecular genetics, and a range of clinical laboratory disciplines including microbiology, immunology, biochemistry and haematology, this major (along with completion of one of the recommended double majors) will potentially help prepare you for a fourth year of study and a professional qualification in Laboratory Medicine.
