General information

There are two types: 100% online, and the offline. The General Medical Skills is the only course that can not be completed online. Courses are self-paced, you get a list of reading material, recommended reading material, course work, and an exam. The only thing compulsory is the proctored exam at the end of each course. Means: you can take the exam as soon as you feel confident. Every course allows for one retake of an exam. After failing the second time, the course work becomes obligatory to complete before being allowed to do a retake and you have to pay an additional examination fee.

Prerequisites

Basic (Highschool level) understanding of Chemistry, Biology, Physics, and Mathematics.

English proficiency.

Note: We will not validate your credentials regarding the prerequisites for our courses. However, it will take a lot more effort to complete the selected course if you lack the recommended qualifications.

General Medical Skills

In this course, you will learn about how to conduct a basic physical exam. From a series of neurological tests to taking blood pressure, how (and when to use) quick tests (both with fingertip blood and urine), the use of various equipment like the stethoscope, and otoscope, and how to feel for abnormalities in one’s body.

We also pay a lot of attention to how to treat the patient.

Biochemistry

You will learn about proteins and the role they play in our bodies. It focuses on the chemical processes within and related to living organisms.

Medical Chemistry

This course is about the intersection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, pharmacology, and various other biological specialties, where they are involved with the design, chemical synthesis, and development of the market of pharmaceutical agents, or bio-active molecules (drugs).

Medical Biology

Is an introductory course that covers the laboratory and research side of analysis, microscopy, immunology, bacteriology, virology, hematology, etc.

Structure and Function

Covers basic biochemistry; cell and tissue pathology; and cardiac, circulatory, respiratory, and renal structure and function. The advanced course covers the gastrointestinal and dermatologic structure and function, physiology and pathology

Clinical Anatomy

Covers the anatomy of the upper extremity, joint types, muscle types, heart, great vessels, neuromuscular units, lungs, arthrokinematics, pelvis, hip, renal anatomy, gluteal region, and thigh. The advanced course covers the anatomy of the gastrointestinal system; lower extremity; liver; gall bladder; head, neck, and face; skull; axial skeleton and core muscles; spinal mechanics; diaphragm; and male and female genitourinary systems.
