Health Science and Math Courses Offered Fully Online
Science Prerequisites for Health Professions (SPHP)
The science prerequisite for health professions courses at UNE Online are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but need one or two prerequisite courses in order to complete their graduate or medical school application. Most of our SPHP students are either enrolled at another university already, or have actually completed their undergraduate degree and just need one or two classes to satisfy their nursing prerequisites or medical school prerequisites. 2016 Academic Calendar.
No need to be matriculated
As long as you meet the prerequisites for the individual courses, you may enroll in the post-baccalaureate online science prerequisite courses. You do not need to apply to UNE – you only need to register for the course you need. The courses are self-paced and designed to be completed in 16 weeks.
Online science prerequisite courses offered:
- Anatomy ANAT 1005
- Genetics BIOL 1040
- Medical Biochemistry CHEM 1005
- Medical Biology I with laboratory BIOL 1010
- Medical Biology II with laboratory BIOL 1011
- Medical General Chemistry I with laboratory CHEM 1010, CHEM 1010L
- Medical General Chemistry II with laboratory CHEM 1011, CHEM 1011L
- Medical Physiology PHSL 1010
- Medical Terminology MEDT 1000
- Microbiology for Health Professions with laboratory BIOL 1020, BIOL 1020L
- Organic Chemistry I with laboratory CHEM 1020, CHEM 1020L
- Organic Chemistry II with laboratory CHEM 1021, CHEM 1021L
- Pathophysiology BIOL 1030
- Physics for the Health Professions I PHYS 1010
- Statistics for the Health Professions MATH 1005
All of the courses are accredited through the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).
While you may enroll into our courses at any time, all courses start on the first and third Wednesday of the month. Course registrations need to be completed by noon EST on the Monday before the course opens. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific dates.
Take as many science prerequisites as you require
Students may take as many courses as needed in order to meet the prerequisite requirements for the health professions program to which they are applying. Many health professions programs accept these courses but we encourage you to check with the schools to which you are planning to apply to verify that the courses are acceptable before you register.
Learning Outcomes for Science Prerequisites for Health Professions Program
Upon completing a lecture course, students will be able to:
- Communicate scientific concepts and information clearly.
- Illustrate fundamental principles of the scientific method, as well as fundamental laws, theories, and principles of scientific disciplines.
- Apply knowledge and critical thinking skills to scientific problems.
Upon completing a lab course, students will be able to:
- Ask a question or define a problem that can be tested.
- Hypothesize possible result(s).
- Plan and/or conduct an investigation individually and/or collaboratively to produce data to serve as the basis for evidence.
- Analyze data using tools, technologies, and/or models (i.e. computational, mathematical, graphical, etc) in order to make valid and reliable scientific claims or determine an optimal design solution.
- Communicate the results by constructing an explanation based on multiple pieces of valid and reliable evidence obtained from a variety of sources (including students’ own investigations, models, theories, simulations, peer review) and the assumption that theories and laws that describe the natural world operate today as they did in the past and will continue to do so in the future.
- Apply scientific ideas, principles, and/or evidence gained from various experiments, as well as other observations and/or research, to provide an explanation of phenomena and solve design problems, taking into account possible unanticipated effects.
