    The official Medical Science thread

    Consolidation of MedSc related stuff in one thread yo!

    Which universities offer Med Sc degrees?

    Charles Sturt University
    Bachelor of Medical Science
    Bachelor of Medical Science (Pathology)/Bachelor of Forensic Biotechnology
    Bachelor of Medical Science/Bachelor of Forensic Biotechnology

    University of Western Sydney
    Bachelor of Medical Science (Hawkesbury and Campbelltown)

    Macquarie University
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    University of Wollongong
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    University of Newcastle
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    University of Sydney

    Bachelor of Engineering and Bachelor of Medical Science
    Bachelor of Medical Science and Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    University of Technology
    Bachelor of Medical Science
    Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Laws
    Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Business
    Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Medical Science
    Bachelor of Medical Science, Bachelor of Arts in International Studies

    University of New South Wales

    Bachelor of Medical Science

    Australian National University
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    University of Canberra
    Bachelor of Medical Science

    What jobs can I get with a MedSc degree?
    When you finish your degree you should aim to become a member of AIMS (Australian Institute of Medical Scientists) http://www.aims.org.au
    Some degrees come with automatic membership.

    With or without your membership, MedScientists can work in;
    - research
    - pathology labs
    - cardiac technicians (performing ecgs, stress tests, etc)
    - health promotion
    - hospital scientists
    - Teaching Medical and Science students (Tutorial-based)

    Can I use Med Sc as a precurser into Medicine?

    This question gets asked to death on this forum. It is possible, but I stress that unless you maintain a certain GPA (I'm thinking it's atleast a credit average, if not a DI) the chances of transferring into Medicine are slim.
    Alternatively you can;
    Try entry through UMAT
    Try and get into Graduate Medicine after you finish your degree


    What do I learn in Med Science?

    This is specific to CSU, if anybody else doing MedSc at the other unis want to contribute...

    Without going into subject codes, etc, I will do/have done subjects in the following
    Anatomy and Physiology
    Statistics
    Microbiology
    Law
    Biochemistry
    Histotechniques
    Bacteriology
    Virology
    Human cytogenetics
    Chemistry
    Cancer cytopathology

    Specific to Forensic Biotechnology;
    DNA and Forensic Technology
    Crime scene



    Any more questoins...

    Re: The official Medical Science thread

    Well, my course structure is like this;
    Anatomy and Physiology
    Law
    Haematology
    Immunology
    Various biochem subjects
    Cancer Cytopathology
    Bacteriology

    Mine is a bit different because I'm doing the Forensic Biotech double degree, so mine also has crime scene, genetic engineering, DNA, etc...

    If you're looking to work in pathology labs as a scientist and not just in research,k ideally you want to be accredited with AIMS.

    Um.

    Why waste your time doing something like an Arts degree to get into Med, when you can do a MedSc degree, do just as well in it and go into a Grad Med degree with some assumed knowledge?

    Sounds smarter to me.

    Also, you will need some science knowledge to pass the GAMSAT, if you didn't do science at VCE?HSC, you make it a lot harder for yourself

    Nice thread.
    You should also add the required UAI's for those courses listed at each respective Uni, and update them around August when the new UAC guide is released.

    (i may have asked this before, but cant remember where so never got to see the answer.)
    Less subject choices/More specific subjects in MedSci?

    EDIT: Becoming a lab tech after graduation?

    That's why I would be doing B Science or B Engineering.
