It is our mission to stay at the cutting edge of healthcare education and research, which is supported by our innovative, accelerated programs and world-class facilities. Whether students aspire to take on the healthcare sector as a clinician or an innovator, lead research in their field of choice, or practise as a medical doctor, an exciting career in the health sciences begins right here.
At Bond, student experience is at the heart of everything we do, and this shines through across the breadth of our program offering. Every student in the Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine has access to small class sizes, personalised attention from skilled academics and work experience and internship opportunities throughout their degree.
What also sets us apart is our willingness to pioneer new methodologies, practices and techniques in both the teaching and research arenas. Bond University offers the fastest pathway to gaining your Doctor of Medicine in Australasia through our Medical Program that sees students begin as undergraduates and complete both components of their training in just 4 years and 8 months. We spearheaded Australia’s first Doctor of Physiotherapy program, and our pioneering educators have invented technologies, in use at Bond and other institutions, that allow students to explore the human body in 3D and augmented reality.
Bond’s Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine has fostered thousands of exceptional graduates now working as highly-skilled healthcare and health research professionals – discover why.

A learning experience like no other
All of the academics, researchers and support staff within our Faculty of Health Sciences & Medicine are dedicated to creating a valuable learning experience that will see students enter their industry of choice with the knowledge and skills necessary to hit the ground running, and succeed.
Our academics have spent, and continue to spend, time in industry honing their craft, giving them a comprehensive understanding of how to teach high-level concepts. They also offer all their students individualised support.
When it comes to specific programs, students will learn from these incredible minds in highly practical settings – something that’s key to becoming an industry-ready graduate. Many of the subjects within our health sciences and medicine degrees have a hands-on component that will see students learn in a simulated lab or hospital environment, often with ‘simulated’ patient actors. Then, depending on their study area of choice, students may also gain opportunities to put their skills to the test with real patients in clinic, hospital, community or private practice settings.
We also have a strong commitment to student wellbeing, with a team of staff, including a full-time registered psychologist, dedicated to ensuring students are supported throughout their studies.
Then, there are those standout moments that give the Bond student experience an unbeatable edge. For a medical student, it could be helping to deliver a baby during a placement on a remote island or in an Indigenous community. For an exercise and sports science student, perhaps it’s working with elite athletes from major national or international sporting teams and honing their skills on high-grade professional training equipment at the Bond Institute of Health & Sport (BIHS). Budding nutrition and dietetic practitioners might undertake an internship or overseas study tour, while a research and PhD candidate could reap the rewards of learning from international experts in the Clem Jones Centre for Regenerative Medicine.
Regardless of the field they pursue, and whatever unique experiences become the highlight of their time at university, our graduates will leave Bond with the confidence, clinical experience and compassion to become a health professional that can make a real difference to people’s lives.
