Online Medical General Chemistry I is equivalent to a one semester course with a laboratory designed for individuals who need first semester general chemistry as a prerequisite to apply for admission to health professions programs.

Graduate programs that may require CHEM 1010 & CHEM 1010L: General Chemistry I & Lab 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.
