Careers in Physiology

Physiology forms the basis of many careers in a variety of industries and facilities such as:

  • Audiology
  • Dentistry
  • Governmental sector
  • Healthcare
  • Information technology
  • Laboratories
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Ophthalmology
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Research
  • Scientific engineering
  • Teaching
  • Tertiary sector
  • Veterinary science

In addition to these options being taken by recent graduates, the increasing importance of the role of biotechnology in our society is rapidly creating new opportunities for physiologists in non-traditional career paths such as publishing companies (scientific writers), law firms (interpretation of forensic data or patent applications), public relations firms and consultancies (who need trained scientists to interpret technical information, and present it to clients/investors in a way they can understand).

If you can see yourself in any of these roles, a BBiomedSc in Functional Human Biology or a BSc in Physiology can help get you there!
