UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor of Health Sciences

Build the foundations for a successful career in health or medicine as you gain a perspective on human health, from the cell to public policy.

Degree Details

A Bachelor of Health Sciences from UQ equips you to make a difference to the lives of many, with a program created in consultation with the health industry.

The degree includes study in biomedical sciences, public health, preventative health, the business of health and professional practice. It is also flexible, designed to prepare you for a clinical or non-clinical career. In your third year you'll undertake 90 hours of practical (non-clinical) placement to gain hands-on industry experience.

For non-clinical students, it provides access to careers in the planning and delivery of efficient public health programs and policies, and enrolment in postgraduate degrees such as the Master of Public Health.

Students seeking a clinical career may complete this program and then, subject to meeting entry requirements, enrol in a clinical postgraduate degree such as the Doctor of Medicine, Master of Occupational Therapy Studies or Master of Dietetics Studies.

For students with provisional entry to the Doctor of Medicine, this is a recognised pathway, providing future medical practitioners with a solid grounding in biomedical sciences, public health, healthcare ethics, behavioural sciences and the healthcare system.
