Breadth subjects are an exciting part of the Melbourne Curriculum. They allow undergraduate students to expand their horizons by taking subjects offered outside their degrees.
University Breadth Subjects" (UBS) have been specially developed for the Melbourne Curriculum and examine current critical issues using techniques and approaches from multiple disciplines. Most subjects at the University are taught by a single school or department and focus on a specific discipline. UBS are a little different as they use multiple disciplines from across school, department and even faculty boundaries to study the topics presented.
The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences teaches four UBS. These subjects are available to all undergraduates to take as breadth, even those studying within this faculty.
See videos of our exciting University Breadth Subjects below!
Our Planet, Our Health (UNIB10017)
This interdisciplinary subject will introduce students to the core concepts of One Health in its broadest sense, as a concept that describes the interconnectedness of the health of humans, animals and the environment.
This subject is offered in conjunction with the Faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences who have created a comprehensive online resource with further information at http://fvas.unimelb.edu.au/opoh
Drugs That Shape Society (UNIB20008)
Drugs that Shape Society is a compelling story of drugs that provides insight to us as individuals and as a society. Drugs impact our lives in many different ways. Social responses to their use have shaped our laws, the health system, commerce – even foreign policies.
Global Health, Security & Sustainability (UNIB30002)
"Global health, Security & Sustainability" is a new and exciting subject that explores the root causes of disease, poverty, injustice and inequity that exist in the world today.
Living Longer: A Global Diagnosis (UNIB30005)
Since 1800, human life expectancy at birth has doubled globally and tripled in the most favoured nations. This has been a biological and social achievement of great complexity, and no single factor—public health, income, material resources, medical knowledge, technology, individual behaviour, social organization—can explain this progress in survival. Neither can any one theory or discipline provide a satisfactory account.
You've worked hard for it, you deserve the rewards!
If you’re a high-achieving student, our Chancellor’s Scholars Program is for you. The Program, which had its first intake in 2012, gives you a guaranteed place in a graduate degree*, and you’ll also enjoy a wide range of other exciting benefits.
Rural Volunteering Program
One of the benefits of the Chancellor’s Scholars Program is the opportunity to take part in a research or internship opportunity. For Bachelor of Biomedicine Chancellor’s Scholars, this includes the Rural Volunteering program in which select students travel in pairs to a small rural/regional towns and take part in a myriad of volunteering activities.
The Department of Rural Health
Based at Shepparton in the Goulburn Valley, we have major nodes at Ballarat and Wangaratta and associations with nearly 40 smaller towns in rural Victoria.

On Monday 7th May 2018 we ran the first of two application briefings for the Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Physiotherapy, Doctor of Optometry and Doctor of Dental Surgery. The recording can be found below including the Q&A session.
Please note the correction to Slide 26 "Application Process Doctor of Physiotherapy" which should read:

- Deadline for domestic applications 13th July 2018
In Semester 1, 2018 we recorded a Graduate Pathways Round Table session with four graduate students - Jeremy who is studying the Doctor of Medicine, Claire who is completing the Master of Public Health, Georgia who is enrolled in the Doctor of Physiotherapy and Jacqueline who is doing her PhD. These students have come through different pathways (Biomedicine, Arts, Science, Honours) and have unique stories to share about how they ended up where they are today.
