Credits: BMSM 7101 - 1 credit, BMSM 7102 - 1 credit

Course Description:

Being able to interpret primary literature and being effective communicators are necessary skills for individuals who participate in all aspects of scientific and health professions. The 7100 series courses will allow students to gain skills in reading scientific articles and to practice the art of communication (both oral and written) with their peers. Each 7100 series course will involve students to make a group presentation as well as write several short synopses of assigned research papers. Two 7100 series courses are required for students enrolled in the evening Master’s programs. The specific focus of this course varies on an annual basis, but will extend discussions introduced during the introductory physiology and biochemistry courses and incorporate topical areas of cell Biology, pharmacology, and microbiology.

Prerequisites: BCHM 1010, PHYM 1010. Open to other M.S. and Ph.D. students.

Lectures and discussions: 2hrs/wk. Letter graded.
