Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BCWMICFTST1003)

The Biomedical Science Programme spans a minimum period of 4 years. Initially, students are provided with a broad-based knowledge of basic medical sciences, allowing students the chance to acquire basic medical laboratory skills. Subsequently, students proceed to the specific study of medical laboratory disciplines of their own choice: Anatomic Pathology, Haematology, Clinical Chemistry, Medical Microbiology, Parasitology, Physiology and Pharmacology.

Students will learn the principles underlying the various analytical methods and investigatory procedures used in laboratory medicine, and obtain practical training to consolidate theoretical instruction. In addition, instruction is provided on research methodologies as students will be carrying out research projects of their design during the final year.

ABOUT PROGRAMME

The Biomedical Science programme covers a wide range of basic medical science knowledge and educates basic medical laboratory skills. During the study, students able to understand the principles underlying the various analytical methods and investigatory procedures used in laboratory medicine, and obtain practical training to consolidate theoretical instruction. A hands-on training in diagnostic laboratory techniques in the disciplines of Anatomic Pathology, Haematology, Clinical Chemistry, Medical Microbiology, Parasitology, Physiology, Pharmacology, Blood Transfusion Technology and Phlebotomy will be provided. In addition, emphasis is given to inculcating soft skills such as critical thinking, bioethics, and communication skills. Furthermore, students are trained in research methodologies exposed to emerging fields in Biomedical Science as they will be carrying out research projects of their design during their final year.

Successful graduates in biomedical science should be able to assume responsible positions in the following situations: (1) as part of a healthcare team that is concerned with the care of patients and/or with basic and applied clinical research; (2) as part of a research team in allied medical disciplines, public health, biotechnology, food, and pharmaceutical industries. Career opportunities are wide, ranging and include employment in clinical laboratory service departments, teaching institutions, and research centres in a public as well as private sectors. Post-graduate training is strongly encouraged, either within the country or abroad, all towards attaining the goal of heightening the quality of science and medicine.

This course is open to both Malaysian and International candidates.
