These are core subjects that may be referenced for further application as you go thru case studies for those that may not have the background in science.
From genes to cells, from microbes to humans – you will learn how all the organisms’ function, creating a fascinating system we call life!
This course will lead you through the main concepts of physiology, anatomy, and ecology of plants, animals, and humans. You will gain the basic grasp of the genetics, evolution theory and microbiology. Through the integration of lectures, self-assessment tests and questionnaires you can complete at your own pace, you will finish the course with the fundamental understanding of key biological principles governing all living organisms.
You don’t see them, but they are everywhere – chemicals. Chemistry teaches you about the matter – its properties, composition, and reactivity. In this course, you will become familiar with methodology, application, and scope of modern chemistry. You will learn about the composition of different matters and discover the fascinating world of atoms and all the limitless variation of formations they can create. At the end of the course, you will obtain a solid understanding of the molecular theory, thermodynamics, and stoichiometry.
“Galileo could see that mathematics is essential not because the paper world of mathematics is more interesting than the sensible world around us, but because the language of mathematics enabled him to read the great book of nature as he called it.” – said Stillman Drak.
The goal of this course is to develop an understanding of key mathematics concepts, linear equations, measurement and geometry basics. You will also learn the most common problem-solving techniques, the principals of which you could apply to solving real life situations
The world is a complex and fascinating place, as you already know from Biology and Chemistry courses. In this course, you will learn the key laws and principles governing the physical world around us.
This course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the key methods the scientist use to explore and analyze natural phenomena; the fundamental laws of physics and ways to apply the given data in real world situations; and help you develop the mathematical ability to apply formulas and derive correct numerical solutions that could be verified in the real world.
Master the wordsmith art and polish up your English language skills! English is the international language of science. If you’d like to keep an eye on the innovative medical treatment strategies and latest researches, having a good grasp on the language is a must.
Within the course, you’ll extend your medical vocabulary, learn the essential aspects of English punctuation and polite language while strengthening your grammar. The course also includes extensive written assignments to help you master the art of business writing and medical transcription.
From the principal understanding of the human and animal behavior as individuals to more complex subjects of emotional development and socio-cultural ties in the societies, learning behavioral science is an important step to becoming physicians.
In the scope of this course, you will become familiarized with relevant issues in behavioral science including molecular genetics, behavioral evolution, neuroscience among the others. You will be taught to conceptualize patient problems by applying a bio-psycho- social-cultural-spiritual formulation and gain a hands-on approach to applying theoretical material during your real life practice.
