Choose your path — or make a new one

If you are considering Biomedicine, it is likely that you have a particular interest in being a doctor. But there's a world of other medical, allied health and bioengineering professions to discover that play essential roles in biomedical research and global healthcare.

While about one third of Melbourne Biomedicine graduates are selected into the Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at the University of Melbourne, representing over half the annual domestic intake for the MD, even more of our graduates collectively choose other graduate pathways including the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS), Doctor of Physiotherapy (DPT) and Doctor of Optometry (OD).

Careers in biomedical science are diverse and there are plenty of options for you as roles are always changing and new careers are forming: you could become a biotechnologist, forensic scientist, neuroscientist, pharmaceutical scientist or microbiologist, just to name a few.
