Short Courses in Biomedicine

Biomedicine is a broad field of study that concerns itself with the theoretical aspects of medicine and which applies biological and natural science concepts to practice. It has a number of related disciplines such as biochemistry, zoology, anatomy, genetics, physiology, pathology, botany, chemistry and biology. Career opportunities include areas that interact with medicine and health, such as engineering-based fields that solve biological and medical problems. Biomedical scientists work out a range of analytical and practical laboratory tests in order to contribute to the diagnosis and treatment of disease.
