Biomedical Courses


BioMed 5000

Human Anatomy & Physiology

(8 Credits)

Condensed systematic in-depth coverage of the human body’s anatomical structures and functions. Areas of study: Osteology, Neurology, Dermatology, Sensory Systems, Muscles, Endocrinology, Genetics, Histology, Metabolism, Embryology, and Immunology. Because the structures of the body are so exquisitely adapted to carry out specific functions, the student can best understand anatomy and physiology when they are presented together.

Intro to Biomedicine

(6 Credits)

An introduction to the field of biomedicine. Various body physiologies will be discussed in combination with related body structures. The course also provide the student an overview of a variety of biomedical applications, technologies, hardware, software programs, and modern tools being used in clinical medicine.

BioMed 5100

Systematic Pathophysiology

(8 Credits)

This condensed pathophysiology course is designed to introduce the student to basic pathologic processes and their applications to major pathologic conditions. The coursework will include study of mechanisms of disease, causative and contributory factors, and an introduction to traditional as well as complementary and alternative management approaches.

BioMed 5151

Integrated Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology I

(8 Credits)

This is the first part of an integrated course combining BioMed 5000 and BioMed 5100.

BioMed 5152

Integrated Anatomy, Physiology & Pathophysiology I

(8 Credits)

This is the second part of an integrated course combining BioMed 5000 and BioMed 5100.

BioMed 6005

Cell Biology

(6 Credits)

This course is designed to provide a first look at what is known and how scientists are going about trying to understand the way in which living things operate at the molecular level, the most fundamental level.

BioMed 6010


(6 Credits)

This course includes the basic principles underlying vertebrate development. Topics will include gametogenesis, fertilization, germ layer formation, organogenesis, growth, differentiation, morphogenesis, and control of development. Some abnormal embryology is introduced.

BioMed 6015


(6 Credits)

This histology course is a study of the microscopic and ultramicroscopic structure of mammalian tissues and organs. This course gives students a thorough and detailed overview of the various human tissues and organs.

BioMed 6020

Basic Neuroscience

(6 Credits)

Students will learn the normal structures and functions of the human nervous system.

BioMed 6030


(6 Credits)

This course will introduce students to the microbial world. General properties of microorganisms including classification, morphologic and growth characteristics, metabolism, and genetics will be discussed. The methods to study microorganisms will be discussed in detail. Students will explore the applications of microbiology to modern diagnostics and biotechnology.

BioMed 6040


(6 Credits)

Genetics has emerged as a central discipline in biology, and with the now-completed sequencing of the human genome, it is evident that all fields of biology can be related to the DNA possessed by the organism. This course will provide the fundamental tools required to understand the language of genetics.

BioMed 6050


(6 Credits)

This course will introduce students to the body’s defenses. Different components of immune system, nonspecific and specific immunity will be discussed. The different cellular elements and biochemical mediators involved in immune response will be discussed in detail. Students will explore the applications of immunology to modern diagnostics, biotechnology and therapeutics. There will be an introduction to immunologic disorders.

BioMed 6250

Exercise Physiology

(6 Credits)

Exercise physiology is an applied discipline that combines knowledge of metabolic biochemistry, cellular and organ system physiology, and anatomic structure and function in order to understand and explain physical and athletic performance. In this course, students will be introduced to the metabolic, muscular, and cardio-respiratory adaptations to both acute and chronic exercise in humans.

BioMed 6300


(6 Credits)

This course provides an introduction to understanding the function of the human brain and its relation to behavior. The goal of this course is for students to integrate a basic understanding of the anatomy and neurology of the brain information into their existing knowledge base regarding cognitive functions.
