如果你被置于茎并希望帮助拯救生命,医学不是唯一的选择

在Covid-19大流行期间,卫生职业一直在聚焦。我们已经听到了很多关于医生和护士在前线拯救生命。

但是你是否知道检查人们是否有Covid-19的测试是由医学实验室科学家完成的?他们还测试血液和其他液体,以帮助诊断和管理患有糖尿病的疾病。

还有许多其他茎职业让我们健康。生物医学科学家develop medicines and vaccines,心理学家look after mental health, and运动和运动科学家帮助预防和管理伤害和疾病。

当他决定出国留学在完成high school in Hong Kong, Tang Ho (Kyle) Ngai wanted to explore how chemistry and biology can help explain the world around us. He chose a医学实验室科学学士at QUT, in Brisbane.

保持真实

凯尔在他学位的第三年。起初,他没有意识到医学实验室科学家如何帮助人们。但由于经验丰富的讲师和对现实世界医学科学公司的访问,这已经改变了。

Now, Kyle wants to use the biochemistry skills he’s learned at uni to help diagnose illnesses in babies and young children.

“If you diagnose disease early the chance of cure or treatment is better,” Kyle said.

婴儿的血液样本可能与成年人有很大不同。例如,儿童的正常水平的钾可以给成年人心脏病发作!

作为昆士兰唯一的技术大学,QUT与行业有很大的联系。在凯尔学位的最后(第四)年度,他将完成为期12周的安置。他希望遵循他对布里斯班·尼古利斯病理学的兴趣生物化学。凯尔在第一年访问了这个实验室。

“这将是一个很好的工作地点。这是世界领先的医疗诊断提供者之一,“他说。

Kyle added that the real-world experiences and practical teaching style at QUT will help him adapt quickly to the workforce after graduating.

回馈社区

Steven Weier是QUT医学学士学位的高级讲师。他说学生们完成了展示昆士兰横跨北北北部的凯恩斯和内陆到Toowoomba。Some also travelled to labs in Melbourne and Sydney. They can also choose to do half of their placement overseas.

史蒂文说,来自医学实验室科学学士学位的许多毕业生作为病理学的实验室科学家。基于病理测试结果的医学决策超过70%,他们真的有助于人们在轨道上保持健康!

“他们正在做科学,但是给予社区的东西,”史蒂文说。

Covid-19导致毕业生需求的繁荣,几乎所有这些都可以获得全职就业。

“We can’t find graduates fast enough!” Steven says.

Graduates from QUT’s Bachelor of Medical Laboratory Science are certified to work anywhere in Australia. And if they are keen to travel, their qualifications are also recognised in the UK, NZ and Hong Kong. A couple of grads have also found jobs in the US.

“它开启了无限世界的机会,”史蒂文说。
