BSc subjects taught at FMHS

Using both campuses and their resources, you can now study a Bachelor of Science majoring in Biomedical Science, Pharmacology or Physiology.

Student working in anatomy lab.

Due to the close relationship between the field of science and medicine, we work with the Faculty of Science to bring you the best of both worlds. 

Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Science (BSc)

The Biomedical Science programme is designed for students with an interest in the emerging areas of basic medical science, such as genomics, microbiology and neural science, and its applications to improve human and animal health.

The undergraduate Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biomedical Science degree is an interdisciplinary specialisation within the BSc programme.

Classes are co-taught by the Faculties of Science and Medical and Health Sciences, with lectures split between the City and Grafton Campuses.

Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology (BSc)

Modern pharmacology developed from the concept that particular chemicals are biologically active and can be used to modify, cure or prevent illness. In practice, this requires a detailed understanding of both how the body functions (physiologically and biochemically) and the problems which can occur (functional disturbances and pathology).

By determining cellular and chemical abnormalities of the disease state, it is at least theoretically possible to design molecules to correct problems that arise.  

Pharmacology classes are co-taught by the Faculties of Science and  Medical and Health Sciences, with lectures split between the City and Grafton Campuses.

Bachelor of Science in Physiology (BSc)

Physiology is a science concerned with explaining how living organisms work. Ultimately, understanding how living organisms work will allow us to understand what goes wrong in disease and provide a rational scientific basis for treatment of disease. Of the biological sciences, Physiology is highly quantitative and has close links with biochemistry, molecular biology, mathematical modelling, pharmacology as well as zoology and plant biology. 

Physiology classes are co-taught by the Faculties of Science and Medical and Health Sciences, with lectures split between the City and Grafton Campuses.
