If you’re looking to do a Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) in 2018, then consider joining Burnet Institute to work on one of our many cutting edge and life changing projects.

Come to our AMREP BMedSc(Hons) Information night on Thursday July 13 and learn how you could work with some of the best scientific minds in the world, furthering your career while making a difference to the world’s most vulnerable communities.

While doing a Burnet Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours), you could find yourself working on a vaccine for malaria, researching HIV cures, developing point of care diagnostic tools or helping prevent hepatitis C virus.

You could research child nutrition and data modelling, hepatitis B in pregnant women, PrEP and HIV, the use of economic modelling to optimise resources for global health, the effects of pornography on young people, and the social impact of gambling – to mention just a few of our many fascinating and worthwhile projects.

Head of Life Sciences Gilda Tachedjian said graduates from Burnet’s Bachelor of Medical Science (Honours) went on to exciting careers in a range of areas including research, policy, government and public health.

“We are quite distinct from other institutions because we have the public health arm. Not only are you exposed to translational research, but you get the big picture aspects, learning about the main issues here and overseas,” Associate Professor Tachedjian said.

“Our students experience a very collegial environment, getting support from senior researchers but also having opportunities to be involved in our student committee and student-specific activities.”

At our information night you’ll get the opportunity to hear the AMREP schools (Central Clinical School and School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine) showcase their research expertise and what they can offer to a BMedSc(Hons) candidate.

You can meet potential supervisors and discuss available research projects after the main presentation, with refreshments provided.

Registration is essential. You can register online here.
