Bond University’s Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine is dedicated to shaping professionals who are distinguished, not just by their superior scientific clinical skills, but by their ethics, compassion and humanity.
The Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine has established a reputation for offering innovative degree programs in a range of health-related disciplines and professions, including Biomedical Science, Exercise and Sports Science, Sports Management, Health Sciences, Medical Laboratory Science, Nutrition and Dietetics, Retrieval Medicine, Medicine and Physiotherapy The Medicine and Physiotherapy programs have achieved external professional recognition and the first cohorts in both courses graduated during 2009 to become part of Australia’s much needed health professional workforce.
We strive to offer the kind of personalised, individualised instruction that is simply not possible in larger institutions. Our class sizes are smaller in all modes of teaching, including lectures, tutorials, laboratories and practical sessions. We focus on workplace learning wherever we can, and our professional courses offer opportunities in a wide range of settings to ensure that theory is informed by practice. It is essential that our students are aware of the needs of prospective employers.
Our new facilities have excellent teaching and learning resources, both within the Faculty and in vital central services such as library and information technology services. Our three-semesters-per-year timetable offers students a genuine competitive edge by allowing them to complete degrees and enter the work place earlier than is possible in most university courses. Working in this intensive study mode can reduce most courses by at least a year and, in the case of the Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery degree program, by almost 18 months in comparison with most standard entry programs available in the Asia-Pacific region.
