Advance human health

The Bachelor of Medical Science (Forensic Mortuary Practice) is a three-year degree that combines the disciplines of medical science (anatomy, physiology, pathology) with a strong focus on forensic science (forensic analysis, forensic anthropology, forensic biology and chemistry, mortuary practice), underpinned by the traditional biomedical disciplines (biology, chemistry and biochemistry).

A partnership with the Forensic and Analytical Science Service (FASS) will ensure appropriate and relevant work-integrated learning, and promote career readiness. FASS will offer placements to students at their three major sites at Lidcombe, Newcastle and Wollongong in the final year of the course.
