ADVANCED TOPICS IN MEDICAL SCIENCE B
Credit points: 30
Advanced Topics in Medical Science B (MED3MSB) is a third year subject designed for students in the Bachelor of Biomedical Science program. The subject consists of current topics in biomedical science including neuromuscular, and central nervous system disorders. We will look in depth at neuromuscular physiology and how perturbations in various physiological aspects result in neuromuscular disorders and examine mechanisms involved in acquired brain injury through both disease and trauma. A major additional component includes a semester-long team-based research project on a currently unresolved issue in medical science. The conduct and presentation of this research project represents the culmination of all the skills learned throughout the Bachelor of Biomedical Science. Research projects may be related to any of the topics studied in MED3MSA or MED3MSB and will be presented in written, oral and poster formats.
