BI 120/120H - Human Biology and Medical Decisions: Food, Disease, Sex, Sleep
We share many fundamental biological processes with other living things (food, disease, sex, sleep), but humans also gain and organize information to make evidence-based decisions about our health and lives. This course examines a range of topics in biology (physiology, cell biology, genetics, and neuroscience) and how information is obtained and used to draw conclusions about biology and health. Topics covered do not overlap with BI 105/106, so this course can be taken by pre-med students to address additional MCAT competencies. BI 120H is appropriate for students who are interested in bioethics and a deeper understanding of evidence-based medical decision making.
Note(s): Three hours of lecture, two hours of lab per week (plus 1 hour of discussion for 120H).
(Fulfills natural sciences requirement; fulfills scientific inquiry.)
