The Bachelor of Health Science (Professional) is designed to equip students with a wide range of skills, knowledge, and attributes for careers promoting health and well-being. Students will receive grounding in core sciences and then choose specialised studies.

The program has a multi-disciplinary and applied focus, which ensures students receive a multi-faceted and comprehensive undergraduate education. It engages students with contemporary issues in health science (e.g. Biomedical testing) and develops the skills needed to address them by examining the challenges confronting individuals and communities within Australia and internationally.

The program also develops competency in technologies and approaches to contemporary health science practice in areas such as chemistry, physiological recording methods, biostatistics, and epidemiology.

The professional industry-linked component provides students with the opportunity to gain awareness, experience, and links to industry, whilst enabling them to apply their knowledge, techniques and skills to solve industry related problems. This option is intended for students who wish to focus on a particular area of their career or consultancy.
