Semester 1

Every day we're investigating something new, we're finding new things, even here at a local level. I love my job, that's where my passion lies.

Lauren Upston, Bachelor of Biomedical Science
In medical laboratories all around the world, bright minds are helping to diagnose and track the treatment of human disease – and bring new discoveries to light. This course gives you the chance to join their ranks.

Formerly known as The Bachelor of Biomedical Science, the newly titled Bachelor of Laboratory Medicine is the perfect degree for anyone looking to work in specialised medical or pathology laboratories. This degree is professionally accredited by the Australian Institute of Medical Scientists (AIMS), so employers will recognise that graduates from the course have been specifically trained for the industry – and are ready to be employed as medical scientists.

The three and half year course consists of six semesters of on-campus study, plus a seventh semester of clinical placement in an accredited lab in Australia.

This program is structured to build your knowledge in chemistry, anatomy, physiology, histology, immunology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, haematology, clinical biochemistry and medical microbiology.

With this knowledge, you'll be ready to work in diagnostic pathology or medical research laboratories, and start making your own contributions to the medical science field.

The Bachelor of Laboratory Medicine is designed to prepare students to work in specialised medical and pathology laboratories that provide diagnostic services that are an essential part of the health care system. The tests performed provide valuable information that is used in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Many graduates continue into postgraduate study and conduct research in the areas of molecular biology, clinical chemistry, medical microbiology and haematology.

Students will gain knowledge and a variety of skills in professional areas such as: clinical chemistry, endocrinology, haematology, blood transfusion science, histopathology, microbiology, human molecular biology, and immunology.

  • Exhibit well-developed knowledge of disciplines within Laboratory Medicine by: - Demonstrating broad, coherent and comprehensive knowledge of Laboratory medicine disciplines and principles of laboratory testing; - Performing, analysing and interpreting diagnostic laboratory tests, and - Integrating and applying knowledge to quality systems and laboratory medicine within health care.
  • Critically analyse and solve problems by: - applying well-developed knowledge; - gathering, synthesis and critically evaluating information from a range of sources; - designing, planning and conducting laboratory investigations; - collecting, accurately recording, interpreting and drawing conclusions from laboratory data.
  • Be effective communicators of laboratory medicine by: - communicating laboratory methods and results as appropriate for a professional environment.
  • Be accountable for their own professional behaviour by: - being independent and self-directed learners; - demonstrating effective, responsible and safe work practices in a laboratory, and - demonstrating knowledge of the social, ethical and legal requirements associated with laboratory practice and patient care in the health care.

During the final semester of this course, you will participate in a Professional Experience Placement (PEP). This work integrated learning approach enables students to practice newly acquired skills, behaviours and knowledge in a workplace environment. The aim of PEP is to immerse students in a professional healthcare setting, to gain a better understanding of the roles of professionals within the health care system.

This clinical placement is undertaken off campus in an accredited diagnostic pathology laboratory, where you will develop practical laboratory skills and contribute to patient healthcare via diagnostic techniques within the laboratory.

Safety in Practice Compliance

All students enrolling in College of Health and Medicine programs which include a professional experience placement component, laboratory and/or field activity are required to establish and maintain their capacity to practice safely via Safety in Practice Requirements documentation. Please note, students in Laboratory Medicine courses are required to either provide evidence of immunity to Hepatitis B or administration of at least the first dose of a three dose course of Hepatitis B vaccination, by the start of the second week of their degree. Students must bring all documentation relating to Hepatitis B vaccination and immunity (in English) with them when they commence the course. Details on Hepatitis B vaccination and immunity can be found here.

The University of Tasmania is integrated into all areas of industry locally, nationally and internationally be it through research or work placement programs. Talk to your course coordinator about finding an opportunity to take part in a work experience, placement, or extracurricular activities during your degree.

Career outcomes

Studying at UTAS is good because of the small class numbers, so you receive one on one tutoring which is beneficial. The lecturers in the Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Laboratory Medicine) are very helpful, and student have direct access to lecturers.

Yik Chang Ho, Alumni - Bachelor of Biomedical Science [Laboratory Medicine]

On graduation you will be ready to undertake an exciting career at the forefront of laboratory medicine. The opportunities are broad, including roles with diagnostic pathology labs – both public and private facilities, or within the medical research field.

This degree can also be used to launch a career in medical research, veterinary laboratories, diagnostic and pharmaceutical companies or health management.

A number of graduates have used their degree internationally, working in pathology laboratories across South East Asia and Europe.

"A career in biomedical science is an exciting and rewarding, yet challenging career, where no two days are ever the same. The Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Laboratory Medicine) is an excellently rounded degree, which allows graduates to work in numerous scientific fields and apply your skills to a diverse collection of jobs."

– Dr Elizabeth Witherden, Post-doctoral research associate, Kings College London, Alumni, Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Laboratory Medicine), University of Tasmania.
