First-year medical students complete a required, two-quarter sequence in medical biochemistry, the educational goals of which are to understand the major biochemical concepts of cell, tissue, and organ function in health and disease.  These goals are achieved through lectures, small group case studies, and readings in the biomedical literature.  In addition to the required courses, the Biochemistry faculty offer an elective course in Clinical Nutrition.  Faculty members also accept students into a research elective program.
