|Total Guided and Independent Learning:
|8.||PREREQUISITE (IF ANY)||BIOCHEMISTRY I (PAB 1013) AND BIOCHEMISTRY II (PAB 1023)|
|9.||OBJECTIVES||The course objectives are;
1. explain biochemical processes such as digestion and absorption of nutrients, conversion of nutrients into energy, metabolism of the major nutrients
2. describe the control and regulation of metabolism in the human body
3. describe metabolic disorders and inherited diseases related to the major nutrients in the human body
|10.||LEARNING OUTCOMES||At the end of the course, students are able to:
1. explain normal and abnormal metabolic processes, its control and regulation in the human body (LO1 C2)
2. perform biochemical laboratory tests. (LO2 P2)
3. relate biochemical concepts to disorders of the human body (LO3 A4)
|11.||TRANSFERABLE SKILLS||Conduct basic biochemical tests
Interpretation of basic biochemical examination results
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.
|13.||SYNOPSIS||This course covers topics such as the digestion and absorption of biomolecules, the metabolism of carbohydrates, amino acids and lipids, the conversion of biomolecules to energy via electron transport chain and oxidative phosphorylation, metabolic disorder of each biomolecules in selected clinical cases, and biosynthesis and action of hormones and their regulation. The understanding and application of nutrition in clinical perspective is emphasized. Students are expected to understand molecular biology and genetics in medicine and relate to clinical disorders. Discussion on clinical chemistry of homeostasis, acid base imbalance, liver function and its disorder will be carried out. Students are also expected to perform basic biochemical techniques in diagnosis of certain conditions.|
