BMED12-209: Medical Biochemistry 2

Description

Medical Biochemistry 2 has been designed to develop students' knowledge acquired in Medical Biochemistry 1 in the area of human metabolism through the key catabolic and anabolic metabolic pathways. Students will gain insight into the principles of bioenergetics and regulatory aspects of integrated metabolism. Students will also apply their knowledge in a technology-enhanced learning environment as well as small group case studies to examine how metabolism changes in the transition from healthy to diseased states and the body's response to exercise and trauma. Students will enhance their practical and in modern biochemical techniques (chromatography, spectrophotometric kit assays). Students will work in small groups using higher order critical thinking skills to solve case studies.

Learning outcomes

1. Demonstrate a sound knowledge and understanding of the key metabolic pathways relating to carbohydrate, lipid and nitrogen metabolism in health and disease.
2. Describe and explain in detail how the metabolic pathways are regulated and how these pathways integrate into other metabolic pathways to maintain the organism as a whole
3. Understand the consequences of metabolic disturbances in terms of patient symptoms in a number of key disease states.
4. Locate information relating to various biochemical topics and interpret appropriate data.
5. Present and interpret scientific data that is conducted from experiments
6. Develop teamwork and leadership skills in a small group environment
7. Demonstrate competencies in advanced biochemical techniques using higher order analytical skills to solve case studies in a problem-based learning environment
