The highly technical field of medical bioscience is all about the human body, health care and disease. But you won't be peering through microscopes all the time. Fieldwork with a laboratory or community health organisation and professional training are also built into your course. This means a wide range of career prospects both in Malaysia and overseas.
A special feature of the degree is its specific development for the Malaysian context. The course provides you with an understanding of medical bioscience in a tropical environment, with a particular focus on techniques in tropical medicine.
The course commences with a foundation year, covering biology, biotechnology, chemistry and statistical reasoning and analysis. You also study a wide range of topics specific to medical bioscience and undertake a professional attachment to a clinical or medical laboratory. Every subject is tailored to meet the specific demands of our region and we make sure you leave with a sound understanding of ethics.
