“I enjoy the breadth and depth of content we are exposed to through the Bachelor of Biomedicine - particularly due to their clinical relevance to our future careers. The choice of electives available in second year has been a highlight for me, as well as the anatomical dissections in the Human Structure and Function subject," says Allen.
"Throughout my studies I've also found being involved in student societies immensely enjoyable. Through the Biomedicine Students' Society I’ve meet an amazing, diverse group of friends and developed my leadership skills.”
