If you’ve decided on a career in health care and are looking to complete your bachelor’s degree, the unique curriculum at National University can give you a distinct advantage over most community and four-year colleges.
Biomedical sciences are the foundation of knowledge for all health care professionals. Unlike most undergraduate programs, curriculum at National University focuses solely on health care-related courses. Instead of studying plant or animal sciences not applicable to a health care career, your focus will be on human biology.
To further your understanding of the human body, biomedical science students also get the chance to work on real human cadavers. In Anatomy l, students learn about the musculoskeletal systems, muscles, bones, nerves, blood vessels, and skin. Anatomy II covers the chest and abdomen, lungs, heart, gastro-intestinal tract, and reproductive system. Students enrolled in the anatomy courses spend two hours each week in our gross-anatomy lab. They examine multiple cadavers to observe structures that they are discussing in classroom lectures. This also gives them a chance to observe differences between one body and another.
In addition to basic science courses in microbiology, physiology, and chemistry, students take courses in pathology, nutrition, immunology, epidemiology, and pharmacology. These courses will help ensure that you are well prepared for medical school or any other health degree program you pursue upon graduation.
