    Bachelor of Clinical Sciences (Honours)

    The biomedicine program is really great because, in the first two years, there’s a lot of flexibility. You can learn about Medical Laboratory Sciences, Biomedicine and Clinical Science. I really like physiology; that was my passion, so it drew me towards Clinical Sciences.

    With JCU, the employment rate after university is pretty high. I’m from down south, so I actually moved up here quite far away from home. I also chose JCU for the facilities and the course is one of the best in Australia.

    It is very rewarding to teach and guide students on the journey to making a difference in the clinical sciences. Our students have up-to-date and workplace-relevant learning experiences because they learn from active researchers and in partnership with clinical scientists from The Townsville Hospital.

    JCU graduates have a really strong focus on the patient journey, probably because they have developed interpretation and analysis skills across multiple sciences. They are great at understanding the pathophysiology of the various chronic diseases that impact our patients.
