BM1003 - Biomedicine in the Tropics
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
As a foundation to the Bachelor of Biomedicine and Bachelor of Medical Laboratory
Sciences, BM1003 introduces you to fundamental core research skills, both theoretical
and practical. It positions you, the learner, as an up-and-coming scientist gathering
skills in research methodology, data base searching, information retrieval and scientific
reporting (written and oral). At the level of the subject, you will explore the diversity
of disciplines and options for further study in biomedicine including medical laboratory
science and other laboratory-based careers within a tropical/regional context. You
will have the opportunity to learn team works skills, professional ethics, biosafety
and experimental design. You will gain practical experience through the combination
of laboratory/workshop and work placement in teaching and research laboratory environments.
You will also have the opportunity to network with a host of researchers that are
guest lecturers in the subject and for your scientist profile interview assessment.
- Apply theoretical and ethical principles (human, animal and/or bioethics) to research
