The Pre-Medical course and degree offerings at IUHS are designed specifically to be just that. The necessary academic foundation to undertake the study of Medicine.
 

The philosophy of the department is to not only prepare a student for medical school with the necessary undergraduate sciences but to enlighten them and draw the links between those studies and Medicine.

 

The IUHS premedical courses offered satisfy the need for a foundation of knowledge as well as offering the opportunity to achieve a Bachelors of Science. The core courses in the program include Math/Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.

Module 3 – Biology 3
 

An advanced study of cell metabolism and cell structure and function.
 

Topics include:
In cell metabolism: Thermodynamics and regulation of metabolism, glycolysis and gluconeogenesis, citric acid cycle and fatty acid oxidation, transport across biomembranes, redox reactions and the
respiratory chain, chemiosmotic coupling, photosynthesis, and protein targeting and secretion


In cell structure and function: endocytosis and exocytosis, cytoskeleton (actin, muscles and movement, microtubules and intracellular movements, ciliary movement, mitosis), intracellular signalling cascades and their links to nerve cells and ion flux transduction, and, hormones and receptor binding. The roles of extracellular matrix, cell adhesion molecules and intercellular junctions. The cell division cycle and its
relationship to cancer
