Surviving Chemistry, Important steps toward a Health Professions Career

General Chemistry ~ HS Chemistry, but more detailed and

more intense

Organic Chemistry ~a new language that will be vital for your career

Biochemistry ~focus on molecules and mechanisms involved in biological functions.

general chemistry
General Chemistry
  • Attend all lectures, discussion sects, & Labs.
  • ‘Skim’ the material before lecture.
  • Discover your learning ‘style’ and work appropriately e.g.
  • Read, in detail and annotate…soon after lecture.
  • Work all the suggested problems wo using the answer key. (Yes, it does take more time…)
  • Ask questions in discussion and with friends.
  • Ask questions of faculty, TAs, tutors etc.
  • BTW, Don’t stay up all night before an exam, etc.
  • REALLY!
organic chemistry
Organic Chemistry
  • Attend all lectures, discussion sects., & Labs.
  • Review Gen. Chem. material ~first 2 chapters so that you are prepared on the first day of class.
  • ‘Skim’ the material before each lecture.
  • View Organic as a new language and work every day!
  • Depending on your learning style: take notes; make flash cards; annotate book; make graphic organizers; work problems; search the web for material; etc.
  • Get a model kit to help with 3D perceptions and split it.
  • For questions, attend discussion section, develop a study-buddy, see a tutor, talk with professor, etc.
biochemistry
Biochemistry
  • Biological actions explained through use of molecular structure, enzymes, kinetics, reaction mechanisms, thermodynamics, etc.
  • Cell Biology is a good precursor for the class
  • Lots of information(~1000 page textbook) in a, currently, v large one semester class.
  • Former students say ‘..best approx. to med school class.’
  • Skim, read, work problems, ask questions...

If you have studied, organic & biochem, this anticancer drug activation mechanism should be understandable. Activation of Adriamycin by AN-9

why do this
Why do this?
  • These classes are easier than professional school, so you develop good study habits now (better student)!
  • Your level of understanding will be tested by national admission tests. Study now and save your money (better student and better consumer).
  • Competence in these areas will help you better understand details in biomedical classes as well as worldwide environmental, health, and safety issues (better citizen).
  • Serious study in all three sciences will improve your chance of getting admitted to professional or graduate school.
  • Research will help you decide if you want to be a healthcare professional or a Ph.D. (clinical practice vs research) or something else.
research opportunities
Research Opportunities
  • Follow your interests to see if you will enjoy research work.
  • At LU start asking and sign up early as the opportunities & scholarships are limited.
  • Check out summer opportunities elsewhere via REU etc. www.netguru.neu.edu
  • Spend at least two semesters to really get into the work and show your dedication.
resources use them
Resources – Use them!
  • Textbook
  • Study guides
  • Faculty
  • Teaching Assistants
  • Tutors/ Fellow Students
  • Web (maybe more important for you?)
  • Best Wishes for your future success!
