BMSC 5205 Topics in Biomedical Sciences

2 SCH. This course is an introduction to the core integrated biomedical sciences curriculum required for all first-year biomedical sciences graduate students at the health science center. It is not intended to be all-encompassing or comprehensive, but it does aim to provide the student with an overview of some seminal concepts in areas ranging from biochemistry to pharmacology and neuroscience. It will become apparent at the conclusion of the course, if not before, that division of biomedical science into traditional disciplines is no longer valid, because, as future scientists, students must become familiar with basic information that transcends all subjects. The goal of this course is to start the student on the path toward the integration of certain important concepts into his/her learning and understanding regardless of final choice of discipline. Offered each summer. Letter Grade
