What is the structure to health sciences?
Health science first year is a two semester course. You can also do a degree in health science generally, but the main reasons for health science first year is to gain admission into one of the competitive specialties (link below to the Otago webpage for each):
To gain entrance there are two separate semesters:
|Semester one||Title and points|
|BIOC 192||Foundations of Biochemistry||18|
|CELS 191||Cell and Molecular Biology||18|
|CHEM 191||The Chemical Basis of Biology and Human Health||18|
|HUBS 191||Human Body Systems 1||18|
|HUBS 192||Human Body Systems 2||18|
|PHSI 191||Biological Physics||18|
|POPH 192||Population Health||18|
|Eighth paper||Optional eight paper||18|
You are only allowed to do health science once, so be prepared for this. The course is highly demanding in terms of contact time and independent learning. There are numerous tests for each of the papers.
