Tommy's Journey Through Biomedicine.

Hello everyone, my name is Tommy and I have decided to write a University Journey Journal (was thinking about it but never actually did it). I started it to hopefully have something to look back on in the future. I

What course am I studying?

I am starting my first year of a Bachelor of Biomedicine student at the University of Melbourne.

Why am I studying a Bachelor of Biomedicine?

Mainly for the pathway of getting Postgraduate Medicine somewhere in Australia (preferably Melbourne but everyone knows UniMelb and UniSyd are pretty much the toughest)

What subjects will I be doing?

First Year Semester 1:
>BIOL10002 (Biomolecules and Cells) [compulsory subject]
>BIOL10001 (Discovering Biomedicine) [compulsory subject]
>PSYCH10003 (Mind Brain Behaviour 1) [I wanted to explore some territory that I haven't been in before. Since year 1 has the least weighting on GPA I decided trying some things in the first year would be of benefit.]
>FOOD10001 (Beer Styles and Sensory Analysis) [mainly as WAM booster]

First Year Semester 2:
>BIOM10002 (Exploring Biomedicine) [Compulsory subject]
>CHEM10006 (Chemistry for Biomedicine) [compulsory subject]
>PHYC10007 (Physics for Biomedicine) [I wanted to challenge myself to do this subject + also be able to undertake a formal subject to cover most concepts for GAMSAT. Although the GAMSAT is not content/concept focused, I felt taking a subject in physics would assist me better than self-studying physics]
>SOCL10003 (Inequalities: Challenges for the future) [didn't feel like taking 2 WAM boosters in Y1 when the workload is the lowest. So I wanted to take something that was very useful and interesting but not easy.  (2 research essays that must be done). I would learn a lot from this experience]

What are your goals/plans for the future?
The goal of postgraduate medicine is not a hard-locked in goal. I wish to discover what I desire to do through my three years in the Bachelor of Biomedicine as I have an interest in the health sciences.

Thank you for reading! I will continue to update this over the time I spend in University.

Hey Tommy!  :D

Looks like we're both doing Biomed at Melb! Which subject are you most excited for? Are you thinking of joining any clubs or societies?

I'm looking forward to following along on your journey to Med and I wish you all the best!

Hey bro

Beer styles? Interesting. Monash doesn't have any fun or quirky subjects like that. Looking forward to following your journal.

You're so lucky to have a good Psych department. Would've done it if I didn't hear all the bad stuff about the Psych department at Monash  :(

Hi Tommy!  ;D

You have quite an interesting group of subjects (Beer styles sounds so good!). What are you most looking forward to doing in uni when it starts?

I'm excited to see more updates from you in the future and good luck! 8)
