The Health Sciences program provides a good grounding in the many disciplines that exist within the field of health science.
While the main focus is on biological and biochemical subjects, your studies will extend into chemistry, cell biology and anatomy.
You will develop strong foundations for entry into the second year of a number of Griffith University degree level programs in health sciences.
