Online Medical Biology II

This online course is a four semester hour course delivered at a distance and includes a virtual laboratory component. It is designed for individuals with a baccalaureate degree who need a second semester of biology as a prerequisite to apply for admission to health professions’ programs.

Graduate programs that may require BIOL 1011: Online Medical Biology II may include but are not limited to:

  • Dietetics
  • Nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Physician assistant
  • Nurse anesthesia
  • Pharmacy
  • Veterinary medicine
  • Dental medicine
  • Medicine

The overall goal of this online course is to provide the student interested in the health professions with an introduction to biology that emphasizes the concepts that will be important for, and provide the basis for, the topics – considered in biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology, pharmacology, and physiology – which the student will encounter in their professional studies.

A conceptual approach

To achieve this goal, the course emphasizes a conceptual approach to the principles of biology. The student is encouraged to learn factual material within a conceptual framework in order to achieve an understanding of basic biological theory. By doing so, they will be able to apply this material to their further studies. Numerous examples, largely relating to human biology and especially to human health and disease, are provided to encourage this process.

Emphasis on health sciences applications

The Online Medical Biology II course content considers principles of evolution as related to biological thought, surveys the six kingdoms and population biology – placing an emphasis on health sciences applications – and discusses several “special topics” relevant to human biology.
