Biochemistry is a one-year course designed to cover the organic and biological chemistry necessary for the nursing and allied health (e.g., dietitians, medical technologist, physical therapists, etc.) career preparation.  It will offer college-bound students a strong background in basic biochemistry. Specifically, we will cover recognizing the structure, physical properties, and chemical reactions of organic molecules, body fluids, and acids, as well as biological functions and their relationships to enzymes, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and DNA. Emphasis is placed on developing college level problem-solving techniques and strategies.  A college preparatory delivery, as well as college level textbooks and publications, will be provided.

This course will appeal to students with a high interest in studying and learning biochemistry concepts, as well as those that wish to earn Chippewa Valley Technical College and college transferrable credit while in high school. Use the UW System Credit Transfer Wizard to see how your credits will transfer.

FYI, programs at CVTC that require this course include: Dental Hygienist and Medical Laboratory Technician.
