Welcome to the home page for Online Distance Medical Biochemistry (DPPP-368)! This online course is designed for Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Medical and other students who are entering a medical profession. This course differs from most traditional biochemistry courses in several ways. The focus is human medical biochemistry. The course is limited to what is known about humans and disregards plant and most microbial systems. It emphasizes human metabolism. Students develop an appreciation of metabolism during the fed, fasting and starved state. A substantial number of medical cases are included to demonstrate the relevance of biochemistry to health and disease.

You may enroll any day of the year from anywhere in the world and start the course in approximately one week..
