    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a course that is relevant for anyone applying to medical school or pursuing PhD work in the biological sciences. It is a good introductory course and Dr. Barrera taught it well. However, I did not really appreciate the material until I got to medical school and learned the clinical aspects of it, which was not presented when I was in undergraduate school. I made an A - you have to study, but it's a fair amount of work.

    Course highlights:

    I learned about glycolysis and the regulatory steps of that process, enzymatic processes, acid-base disorders, and various signal transduction pathways including GCPR which are relevant to medicine.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Study the material every week and draw out the intersecting pathways for yourself. It sometimes seems like an uncohesive image, but if you draw things out, the pieces eventually begin to fall together. I believe we had one group paper on Beta-Lactamases which was sort of a pain to coordinate to write, but it was not too bad and we got a decent grade. The discussion portion had some homework, and be sure to do that ahead of time and work in groups.
