The School of Medical Sciences is home to learning and research in human biology, biomedical science, paramedical science and postgraduate medicine. We strive for health improvement through the application of new knowledge and excellence in teaching and research.
Commencing in Semester 1 2013, ECU's new Bachelor of Medical Science degree is a three-year course providing pathways to medicine and other health professions, medical research and diagnostics, and the health industry.
"My course gave me the chance to learn outside the lab."
Our areas of research strength are in the neurosciences with a focus on Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Parkinson’s disease, reproductive technology, genetics and cancer with a focus on melanoma. We value research into learning and teaching, clinical practice, simulation, inter-professional practice and health systems with a focus on workforce development.
