Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science (BMLSC)
This vocational and professionally oriented degree will prepare students for a career as medical scientists in the areas of diagnostic pathology, research, and specialised laboratories. Medical laboratory scientists are integral to the diagnosis and management of disease, through conducting research into the causes and cures of disease and improving tests for disease detection.
Graduates are employed in fields such as diagnostic pathology, forensic pathology, and research laboratories, as well as health management, public health departments, the Red Cross Blood Service, educational institutes and the pharmaceutical industry.
This course has a strong practical and industry-based focus, and students may have the opportunity to study and work in medical laboratories in the Northern Territory while undertaking the degree.
This course has a 3.5 year accelerated option that is shorter than similar degrees while still providing 12 months professional placement. This will enable graduates to enter the workforce at a time when there is less competition for employment.
Criminal History Check: students must have cleared a Police Check before they can undertake any placements. Students whose Police Checks are not cleared by the education sectors will not be able to undertake placements and will not, therefore, be able to complete the requirements of the course.
The South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC) receives and processes applications for admission to Charles Darwin University Higher Education prospective students.
