The Pre-Med course covers various topics within Pre-Med including content modules on genetic inheritance, hormones and organic chemistry. The program also explores case studies on various diseases of the human body.
This course is organized into 3 categories: content modules, case studies on disease and the pre-medical path. The content modules serve as a sample for foundational material that is integral to success in pre-medical classes, but also as a prospective physician. The three topics we have decided to cover are significant because they all play a special role in understanding diseases, as well as how to treat them.
The first content module is genetic inheritance. In this section, you will learn about the basic molecules that store information about your genetics, how this information is converted to proteins and how it is passed on from one generation to the next. We will also look at how genetic information is manipulated and altered by the environment, and then will go through two examples of genetic disorders.
In the second content module, we explore the diverse world of hormones: what they are and how they work. We will study the three different types of hormones and investigate how they are regulated inside the body.
The last content module provides you with an introduction to organic chemistry. We will see what it means for a molecule to be organic, and how chemists name various functional groups.
The case studies component will not only prepare you for this program’s final activity, but also walks you through the process of understanding disease. We have placed an emphasis on how diseases are deviations from what is considered to be normal within the body by investigating how these “normal” processes work and what goes wrong to produce a disease-state.
Lastly, the pre-medical path was designed to give you a sense of the journey that you all will embark upon in the near future.
The New Leaders training program also includes CBI of Miami’s best selling online course: Child Development and complete behavioral evaluation.
New Leaders Program is a partnership between BBI of Chicago/CBI of Miami and Harvard Student Agencies.
Four days of intensive educational training for the new leaders of the 21st century.
