Online Medical Biology I

BIOL 1010 Online

UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cal­en­dars | UNE Aca­d­e­m­ic Cat­a­log | Tech­ni­cal Require­ments

This online course is four semes­ter hours and includes a vir­tu­al lab­o­ra­to­ry com­po­nent. This lec­ture and lab course is designed for indi­vid­u­als who need a semes­ter of biol­o­gy as a pre­req­ui­site to apply for admis­sion to a pro­gram in the health pro­fes­sion.

Grad­u­ate pro­grams that may require BIOL 1010: Online Med­ical Biol­o­gy I may include but are not lim­it­ed to:

  • Grad­u­ate pro­grams in 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 the stu­dent will encounter in their pro­fes­sion­al stud­ies. Top­ics con­sid­ered include bio­chem­istry, mol­e­c­u­lar biol­o­gy, cell biol­o­gy, phar­ma­col­o­gy, and phys­i­ol­o­gy.

A conceptual approach

To achieve this goal, this human biol­o­gy 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.

Laboratory

For the best expe­ri­ence, check the sys­tem require­ments from the pub­lish­er. Please note, some activ­i­ties in this course use Flash, and are there­fore not screen-read­er acces­si­ble, and may not work on a mobile device.

  • It is manda­to­ry for stu­dents enrolled in the course to order a lab kit.
  • The kit must be pur­chased direct­ly through Hands-on Labs and can­not be pur­chased sec­ond hand or from anoth­er ven­dor.
  • Stu­dents must com­plete both parts of every lab – the assigned exper­i­ment and the cor­re­spond­ing assign­ment online – to earn a grade for the lab.

HANDS-ON LEARNING LAB KIT: LP-3048-BK-01: LABPAQ, BIOLOGY


The kits MUST BE ORDERED IMMEDIATELY UPON ENROLLMENT in order to ensure mate­ri­als are on hand for the start of the course. Review the HOL Return and Refund Pol­i­cy

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.

Prerequisites

There are no pre­req­ui­sites for this dis­tance course, Online Med­ical Biol­o­gy I.

Required Course Materials

Textbook

Biol­o­gy, 4th edi­tion by Brook­er, Wid­mair, Gra­ham and Stil­ing

The text for this course is an ebook with home­work assign­ments as part of your pur­chase. You can buy access to these at the UNE book­store or after you have enrolled in the course, you can buy it direct­ly from the pub­lish­er by click­ing on the first home­work link. If you pur­chase it from the book­store, it will ask for a course web­site. Sim­ply go to the black­board site and click on the first home­work link. You can then enter your access code there.

Note: for stu­dents plan­ning to enroll in Med­ical Biol­o­gy II fol­low­ing this course, the same book and home­work sys­tem will be used. The access that you pur­chase for Med­ical Biol­o­gy I will last for one cal­en­dar year so that if you com­plete both cours­es with­in this time frame, you will NOT need to pur­chase any addi­tion­al text mate­ri­als for Med­ical Biol­o­gy II. You will be able to use the same code that you used in Med­ical Biol­o­gy I for the text.

Lab Material

 The cost of the lab­o­ra­to­ry mate­ri­als is not includ­ed in the lab­o­ra­to­ry fee and must be pur­chased by the stu­dent direct­ly from the sup­pli­er, Hands on Labs (HOL). The lab pack includes access to the online HOL web­site and the sup­plies need­ed to per­form the exper­i­ments that will accom­pa­ny this course. You may need to sup­ply oth­er basic items such as paper tow­els, scis­sors, a pen, etc. but these will all be list­ed in the lab­o­ra­to­ry infor­ma­tion from HOL. You should plan on order­ing your lab kit once you have reg­is­tered for the course.
