In this course, you’ll explore medical technology and gain the laboratory experience and analytical skills you need to succeed in fields such as medical diagnosis, medical research or other health-related fields.
You’ll examine disease processes and learn the technical skills you need to handle patient material, perform clinical testing and analyse results. You’ll learn about human biology, cell and molecular biology, and molecular genetics, and cover a range of clinical laboratory disciplines including microbiology, immunology, biochemistry and haematology.
Studying at Murdoch University will put you at the centre of the vibrant health and research precinct, which includes Fiona Stanley and St John of God Hospitals, along with many other health facilities such as the Institute for Immunology and Infectious Diseases.
You can combine this course with other majors to expand your skills and career prospects. A double major in Clinical Laboratory Science and Genetics and Molecular Biology could lead you to a career in molecular research and biotechnology, or a double major with Biomedical Science could help you pursue a career in medical diagnosis or medical research. Clinical Laboratory Science combined with Forensic Biology and Toxicology will open up exciting career paths having learned about both forensic analytical techniques and diagnostic laboratory methods.
If you complete one of these double majors, you may be eligible for entry into a fourth year of study, which will lead to a full qualification in Laboratory Medicine.
