Studying Health Sciences at Monash


Monash Uni
Are you passionate about health and keen to contribute to addressing real health challenges whether they confront individuals or communities? If so, Health Science at Monash is for you.
This course at Monash provides students with a sound foundation in health science, and a broad overview of health care, and skills in identifying, investigating, analysing and assessing health issues. This foundation builds to four specialisations, enabling students to pursue a variety of allied and public health career paths:
 Emergency Health and Paramedic Practice
 Human Services
 Public Health Science
 Radiation Sciences
The first half of the degree will focus on building a core foundation in human disease and healthcare. Students will be exposed to the influence of biological, behavioural, developmental, social and environmental determinants of health.
Having acquired the basic scientific, anatomical and epidemiological knowledge that students will utilise throughout their career, students will then begin their specialist studies in the second half of the second year. Depending on their choice, this may mean broadening their engagement from the Caulfield campus (where the common units are taught) to the Clayton and Peninsula campuses.
The VCE prerequisite subjects are Units 3 & 4: a study score of at least 30 in English (EAL) or 25 in English other than EAL, and Units 3 & 4: a study score of at least 22 in Mathematical Methods (any) or Specialist Mathematics, or a score of at least 25 in Further Mathematics.
