To prepare students, the Medical Bioscience programme from University of the Western Cape teaches students Anatomy, Physiology and Medical Microbiology thereby providing an understanding of the structure and function of the human body, and how the body protects itself against disease.
The degree in Medical Bioscience is a formative degree and does not prepare you for a specific profession. The qualification with scientific training in basic medical related sciences provides you with a gateway to further your studies towards different careers. The graduates work in the food industry, as laboratory assistants and as medical or pharmaceutical reps.
You may also want to combine your degree with a relevant diploma in marketing, finance, education, journalism or even in the legal arena. Many students continue with postgraduate studies in Medical Biosciences with a view towards becoming a research scientists or lecturer.
