Have a head for science, and a keen interest in the workings of the human body? Biomedical Science may be your calling.
Our Diploma in Biomedical Science (BMS) is the most established biomedical science diploma programme in Singapore, taught by a highly distinguished faculty.
Our comprehensive curriculum covers the latest in biomedical sciences and medical breakthroughs. These include areas such as cancer biology, infectious diseases, clinical chemistry, drug discovery, developmental biology, immunology, translational medicine and genomics and proteomics, just to name a few.
New Specialisation Options
In your second year, you can specialise in one of three options. The Biomedical Research Option exposes you to the latest in biomedical sciences and medical breakthroughs. The Clinical Laboratory Technology Option enables you to be trained at the National University Hospital (NUH) to diagnose diseases alongside doctors, nurses and medical technologists. The Medicinal Chemistry Option provides you with opportunities to work with experts in the pharmaceutical industry, hospitals and research institutes to hone your skills in understanding diseases and the design and discovery of new drugs.
Start your career as a research assistant, medical technologist, laboratory biologist or laboratory analyst before moving on to senior positions in research, biomedical science, healthcare, forensic, pharmaceutical, drug design and discovery, clinical trials and clinical labs.
BMS grads are able to pursue a wide range of degree programmes such as biological science, medicine, dentistry, chemistry, laboratory medicine, medical technology, bioengineering, education, architecture, business, business administration, psychology, environmental studies, and social science.
