Course content

The Master of Biomedical and Health Science is a coursework degree to be undertaken in key research areas in the sub-Faculty of Biomedical and Psychological Sciences in the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.

The focus in your initial year will be on research methods and practices. You will undertake coursework units in pedagogical and research skills training, and engage in specialist theory units. Your second year involves a full-time research project and internship under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. The internship will equip you with skills highly valued by employers.

The intention of the Masters program is to provide students with flexibility, a core Monash value enunciated in the "Monash: The Next 10 years" strategy document, and to gain an understanding of the nature of workplaces and their associated values, routines and cultures and to develop and refine skills and professional capacity for work.

The work undertaken in this degree must contribute significantly to the knowledge and understanding of a field of study of direct concern to the Faculty. Additionally, it must demonstrate your capacity to carry out independent research.  In the second year, you will complete a literature review, assist in the planning of a research project, conduct the research project, and write a thesis.
