Here is a big FYI for anyone wanting to take online pre-reqs and apply to Albany Medical College. They do NOT accept the lab component of an online lab like UNE. Like everyone has been saying...check with the programs you are interested in. Most have said they would accept it, but some will not. I copy the E-mail sent to me from one of the associate professors:

 

 

 

 

Where we don't ask for labs specifically, e.g., a third chemistry http://www.amc.edu/Academic/PhysicianAssistant/Admissions.html

 

 

 

then the distance learning Medical Biochemistry through UNE would be a great (and rigiorous) choice: http://faculty.une.edu/com/courses/bionut/distbio/distbiohome.html

 

 

 

In contrast, where we ask for a lab, e.g., microbiology, the consensus of the faculty here has been that we want "real" vs. virtual labs, and so do not accept the lab component, e.g., I have emailed the instructor for the following in the past year to clarify what her labs are, and the PA faculty agreed that we would not accept them. The lecture part of a DL course is fine by us.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.

Usually you can take the course online and then take the lab at a local school near you....Ive done that before and it worked out pretty well for me....labs are usually once a week and if you go through a CC you can usually get a night or day course.

 

Definitely check with teh schools though and see if they will accept it.

 

I did my AA online so all my online courses came from one school....my school did NOT designate online or on campus so unless I say something, anyone looking at my transcripts could not tell if I took the courses online or on campus.

 

Also if you look at local state schools....many offer hybrid online courses where you meet once or twice a week for a short period of time with everything else being offered online.

 

DO NOT take classes online because you think they are easier because for the most part they wont be....if you know that you are lacking in an area (with me its phsyical science) you should probably take it on campus---if you are not good with self study, time management, self motivation ect---take it on campus

I'll throw in my assistance.

 

South Arkansas Community College has online human anatomy/physiology with lab (two courses), nutrition/diet (usually only required for nurses), and a couple other online courses. I'm taking A&P there this summer online. I can report back once I'm finished. They also have very cheap tuition.

 

National Park Community College also has online A&P which I found by doing a random search. Cheap also.

 

Also, I have emails from almost every osteopathic medical school regarding their acceptance of online courses if anyone is interested. PM me for further.

Am hoping someone might have some perspective on this: I have my B.S. in Biological Sciences. During undergrad, I completed Human Physiology (3 cr.); however, anatomy was not offered. I have since taken Intro to A&P, but A&P II is not offered by the same institution. As many schools require either A&P I&II or Anatomy + Physiology, is it reasonable to take A&P II through CCC to fulfill the A&P requirements? I do plan to e-mail schools for clarification, but was hoping to get a general answer (am still doing heavy research to determine my CASPA-designated schools). Thanks!

really couldnt say.....I would think that it may cause a problem.....make sure you email the complete corse description of not only the intro course but also the A&P II course you plan to take....

 

I see the first one causing a problem because of the term "intro" it makes it seem as though its an A&P course for non science majors (like intro to chem and intro to bio)...if thats the case then you will have to take A&P I and II somewhere else back to back

 

Perhaps it may be easier to see if you can find a University that offers anatomy alone online if you dont have a local university that does

Thanks! Does anyone know of a distance learning anatomy class (just anatomy, not A&P)? I've spent hours researching, to no avail.

 

Also, I haven't found virology -- hope you have more success!

Try this one http://www.kellogg.edu/is/coursetec/Fall2009.html i read that you have to go to campus twice...once for a midterm and once for a final but maybe they have it set up so you can do a proctored exam (take it at a testing facility near you) I would email the instructor

Hello,

I'd like to apply at Drew this January. I want to take 1 year of Chemistry (1&2) before applying. I need to take an intro class for most Chem I courses (except the Chem course at Coastline).

 

If I could find a school that offers an 8 week Chem I course for the first part of the Fall term and an 8 week Chem II course for the second I will meet the prereq before the deadline.

 

I'll only have the minimum patient care experience at time of application (full time course load) so I'm trying to make sure all grades for prereqs are in by the time I apply so that my application is strong academically.

 

I'd even consider reasonably priced out of state online courses with labs.

The issue isn't me finding an online chemistry course w/ lab. I've found several all over the country.

 

The issues are:

 

1) Short term - 8 weeks or less - chem 1 & chem 2 back to back series commencing this fall

AND

2a) courses from California Community Colleges or CSU or UC schools

OR

2b) affordable courses from outside of the area mentioned in 2a

 

Is didn't think it was too much to ask if a couple of the multitude of courses mentioned fit my parameters. If anyone has any additional info I appreciate your help.

      Im curious about the difficulty of the course and wether or not the exams/finals are open note/internet. and if so, is it easy to find solutions online to the questions along with good explanations.

      Hi everyone!
      I am enrolled in the Biochem course online at Doane University starting May 25. I was wondering if those who have taken this course before recommend the digital version of the textbook or the paper version? If I buy the digital version, will it be missing certain materials I will need for the course (ie. CDs, access cards)?
      Thank you in advance!

      Anyone know if UC San Diego extension courses ( https://extension.ucsd.edu/courses-and-programs/biochemistry) count towards most PA school pre-requisites. I need to take Biochemistry and Genetics over the summer. First time applicant and these would be my two in-progress courses. 

      UC San Diego's prices are pretty good from what I see. Unfortunately most schools that I e-mailed regarding pre-requisites say they can't provide info on if the course would satisfy their requirements at this time.

      Otherwise does anyone have suggestions for where I could take online classes that count towards most schools but still affordable? Currently out of work due to COVID-19.
      Any help is appreciated!

      Curious about the online class 
      chem 206
       
      im aware that it’s comprised of a bunch of modules. Now I’m wondering if there’s any online resources for the assignments to help me complete them. I know the final is a massive portion of the grade. What’s a good way to prepare for it. Is it easy to find resources for this specific course in terms of solutions to questions for the modules and the final exam. 
      Obviously I’m going to prepare for all exams and assignments, but can anything be found online to help?
      thanks.
