A comprehensive study of the function of all organ systems of the human body with a focus on their role in maintaining a constant internal environment (homeostasis). The laboratory supplements and reinforces the material introduced in lecture through the use of case studies and laboratory activities. Prerequisite: CHE 113 or CHE 121. A course at another institution that has an online laboratory will not be accepted as a substitute for BMS 250 and 250L.


This course is designed for any first-year student interested in pursuing a career as a physician, dentist, optometrist, or veterinarian. After exploring the spectrum of medical professions and the characteristics of competitive applicants to medical professional schools, each student will begin writing a personal statement for her/his future application. Additionally, the course exposes students to a variety of current issues in healthcare, including topics related to bioethics, clinical trials and cultural competency. By the end of the course, students will better understand their intended medical profession and how to prepare a compelling application for that program. There are no prerequisites for this course; however, instructor’s consent is required for any non-first year students to register.


Human Anatomy is the study of the external and internal structures of the human body as well as the relationships between these structures and how their function is determined by their form. It is anticipated that this course will serve as an introduction to the anatomy of the human body particularly for those entering the biomedical sciences. 

This course is designed for any first-year student interested in pursuing a career as a physician, dentist, optometrist or veterinarian. After exploring the spectrum of medical professions and the characteristics of competitive applicants to medical professional schools, each student will begin writing a personal statement for her/his future application and practice interviewing skills. Additionally, the course exposes students to a variety of current issues in healthcare, including topics related to bioethics and evidence based medicine research. By the end of the course, students will better understand their intended medical profession and how to prepare a compelling application for that program. There are no prerequisites for this course; however, instructor’s consent is required for any non- first year students to register. Fall semester.

Human Physiology is the study of the mechanisms by which the human body functions. Students will learn the basic functions of each body system and how the relate to one another to maintain homeostasis. It is anticipated that this course will serve as an introduction to the function of the human body particularly for those entering the biomedical sciences.


Introduction to Human Anatomy for those preparing for careers in the biomedical sciences.

In this course we will be introduced to the amazing world of microorganisms that exist all around and within us, and learn about the different ways that these organisms influence our lives.
