Online Medical General Chemistry I

CHEM 1010: Online Chemistry Lecture

2015/16 Academic Calendar | 2015/16 Academic Catalog | Technical Requirements

Online Medical General Chemistry I is equivalent to a one semester course, and has been designed for individuals who need an Online Chemistry Course as a prerequisite to apply for admission to a graduate program in the health professions.

Graduate programs that may require CHEM 1010 Lecture & CHEM 1010 Lab (a separate course) may include but are not limited to:

  • Medicine
  • Veterinary medicine
  • Dental medicine
  • Nursing
  • Physical therapy
  • Physician assistant

The overall goal of this online chemistry lecture and lab is to give the student interested in the health professions an introduction to general chemistry emphasizing the concepts that will be important for and provide the basis for the subjects the student will encounter in their future studies.

Online Medical General Chemistry I course outline

The subjects covered in this course include components of matter, atomic theory, stoichiometry, chemical reactions and bonding, thermochemistry, gases, quantum theory, electron configuration, models of bonding, theories of covalent bonding, shapes of molecules and intermolecular forces of liquids and solids.

If you need the corresponding lab

General Chemistry I is designed for the student to take the lecture and lab concurrently in order to earn four credits. For the full four credits, you must register for both CHEM1010 and CHEM1010L. For students who only need a specific portion of General Chemistry I, however, you have the option to take lecture only (CHEM1010 three credits) or lab only (CHEM1010L one credit).

Important: When selecting lecture and lab within FlexReg, please be sure that the section numbers match. In the event that there is no matching lab number, please select a different lecture, or contact an enrollment specialist. 

Section numbers must match for lecture and lab

Complete at your own pace

Working at the pace typical for a four semester hour course, the average student will complete the online course in approximately 16 weeks. Many students are nontraditional students who have elected an online course for flexibility. Since the course is self-paced, you may complete the course in less than 16 weeks.


A college level algebra course must be completed before registering for this course. All prerequisite courses must have been completed successfully within the past seven years.

Online Chemistry Courses

UNE offers several other online Chemistry courses, including Medical General Chemistry II, Organic Chemistry I and Organic Chemistry II all 100% online with labs available.
