3.     to relate between chemistry and biological processes in the human body

10. LEARNING OUTCOMES At the end of the course, students are able to:

1.      explain the biochemical concepts used in medicine (LO1  A3)

2.      apply the biochemical concepts in relation to medicine (LO3  C3)

3.      relate biochemical concepts in the normal and diseased states (LO2  P2)

11. TRANSFERABLE SKILLS Conduct basic biochemical tests

Interpretation of basic biochemical examination results

Effective communication

Critical thinking and problem solving

12. TEACHING-LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT STRATEGY Teaching-learning strategy:

  • The course will be taught through a combination of lectures, formal tutorial, exercise, group work, using authentic situational or problem solving materials and self directed learning packages. Collaborative teamwork will be fostered throughout the course. The use of in class individual and group presentation or discussion will assess the student’s ability to apply critical thinking and encourage students to respond and participate actively in class.
  • Interactive sessions
  • Hands-on sessions
  • Directed-self learning

 Assessment strategy:

  •  Continuous and end semester examination
13. SYNOPSIS This course is designed to help student understand key concepts and appreciate the significant connections between chemistry, health and the treatment of disease. The course covers concepts in biochemistry in relation to the structure, function and roles of biomolecules in health and disease, the balance between theoretical and practical chemistry of molecules and metabolism unique to health and understanding the functional interaction between metabolism in organs and tissues.
