Hi there, started this thread so as to meet others interested in doing the bachelor of biomedicine course starting January 2010 at the university of melbourne. I'll be attending hopefully [ considering I get the visa soon enough] just wanted to meet people before I actually depart from here...I think it'll be a great moral boost!!

For some reason, it seems to be not such a popular choice on this site.

Don't get me wrong, I am not questioning the quality of the degree or anything, but it seems that most people who come to this website want to do med/dent/pharm... or something else that qualifies you as a health professional of some sort once you graduate.

Hi by the way.

Hi by the way.
But biomed is a good undergraduate course for a graduate medicine program...

But as far I know, in the near future the MBBS system is going to be replaced by the graduate entry program, & anyways melbourne is a great university and since they have started it I believe there will be a lot more universities following this trend. By the way Mana are u an international student??
@ godoftoast, I guess you're really good at solving puzzles yup, bangladesh it is (y)

Not necessarily as you can do the pre-reqs for graduate medicine with basically any course at Melbourne uni.

The only advantage is you if get a guaranteed entry spot into graduate medicine which requires like a 99.95.

i'm pretty sure you can only do the prerequisites in Bachelor of Science or Biomed; this is what they told me as apparently you can't do them all as breadth.
guaranteed is 99 for fullfee and 99.9 for CSP.

but biomed is the preferred route for medicine, but science is just as awesome (yy)

i thought the last intake for the MBBS was this year?
and then the graduate program begins in 2011.

It doesn't matter to them as long as you've got a high GPA, done well on the GAMSAT and have fulfilled the obligate courses (biochem, anatomy and physiology @ a 2nd year level or higher).

This means you could do say engineering as your undergraduate degree and pick up the courses you need whenever through breadth. Thing with breadth is it has to be in a faculty outside your own. If you do science, you can't do a science breadth.
