Has anyone here taken any pre-req classes online through Doane University? Wondering about biochem, but haven't found much about it online. Also wondering if Doane's course is doable course for someone who hasn't taken orgo since 2015.

Finishing up biochem there right now because I started in January! It’s amazing! The class is well structured, and if you put in the work you’ll get a great grade. Dr. beio is very flexible in assignment due dates and answers your questions shortly after you ask them.

I just enrolled into the class todayemoji4.png.. I’m wondering as well.

tbgardner, do you want a virtual study-buddy? Lol. Might be nice to be connected to someone also taking it!

Thanks for the feedback! Well structured sounds nice...far better than what UNE sounds like! Would you say it'd be extremely difficult without having a fresh o-chem knowledge base? That's really my only concern, it's been so long since I took orgo

Honestly, no. You don’t really need to have solid ochem knowledge. I took both of my ochems in 2015 and I didn’t really have much issue in understanding the reaction pathways. You just have to know the basic functional groups like carbonyl, carb acid, amides, imidazoles, amines etc. there’s no mention of reaction types like SN1 SN2 or synthesis. Don’t worry!

The biochem course at Doane is amazing. Most well put together class I've ever taken.

how is it structured ? and how are the exams ? is it possible to get an A if you just study the material that professor provides ? im thinking of taking because I need if for PA- school application

I haven't had a biochem exam yet. It's all assignments although there is a final at the end of the course.

The only exam is a final. Everything else is completing assignments. So it is very doable to get an A while at the same time truly learning the material.

Sorry to bother you but how many chapters is the final? and how difficult are the assignments ?

It is proabably 15 or so chapters. But it’s open notes. The assignments are not too hard. I spent 1-2 hours a day on it.

are the assignments online ? and how would you say the difficult of this online class is out of 10?

The assignments are online and worksheets that you can print out. It's not too difficult thus far, but I will say that there's no lecture component and you'll spend a lot of time teaching yourself. I think that's true of any online course though, the difference with this class being that the way you are graded gives you room for improvement/learning and doing well. It's really not been that difficult, just fast paced. I'd say 7 or 8/10 with 10 being easiest, but I'm only in the third(?) week.

I am interested in taking Biochem here and possible organic chem 2.  Has anyone taken Organic Chem 2 here before?  How was that class?  All of the comments about biochem are very helpful! I have been taking courses online at UNE and are very familiar with them and am looking to switch.  Are the exams at Doane proctored like UNE?  Thank you.

Dr. Beio teaches all of the online chemistry courses at Doane so I would imagine the format is the same. For biochemistry there was only one exam which was the final, and it was not proctored. Instead the program is designed to have a lot of practical application assignments that ensure mastery of the material.

I am on the lookout for a biochemistry course as well. Can anyone provide with a direct link to the course which i can submit the program i am applying into to see if they will accept this online course? 

Also I am currently taking organic II and want to take biochemistry after this but i am unable to do so face to face. But i am really scared of taking an online biochemistry course and not getting an A. It will ruin my gpa. 

Please let me know how the structure of the course is. It will be really helpful. 

Thanks

I am currently half way through biochem course with Prof. Beio. I just wanted to confirm what you stated earlier. The final exam is like the chapter quizzes in that its open notes, and no time limit??

Well the final exam when I took it was open notes but it did have like a 2 hour time limit or something. But there were no chapter quizzes when I took the course so apparently he switched things up.

      Who's been accepted to PA programs where the majority of pre req courses were taken online?
    • By KaiannC
      I am entering into my third year of undergrad, and have completed the required courses to enroll in a biochemistry course. After looking at several PA programs, I noticed that many programs require biochemistry and most highly recommend it. At our school, we have the option of taking a nutritional biochemistry through our nutrition department and a biochemistry course through our biology department. I was wondering if taking the nutritional biochemsitry would be evaluated differently than the regular biochemistry and if this could cause problems later on when applying for schools. Thanks

      I have completed my bachelor's degree in Biology, but since I was pre-med back then, I didn't complete the anatomy and physiology course and now have to complete it at a community college. I also have a full time job and was hoping to take anatomy and physiology in a hybrid setting (online lecture with in person lab). Is this a good idea? I've been looking at schools websites and some don't care, some said "considered on an individual basis," and some won't accept it. Am I limiting my chances too much? I want to apply mostly west coast and surrounding states.  I also have to take statistics and I hope to apply for Fall 2020.
      Thanks!

      Hello all! I am currently trying to decide between two schools and I need some assistance as I am very conflicted. One program is in person and it is 26 months and starts in July, but I would have to move out of state to attend and would graduate in May 2021. The other program is Yale's newer online program and would start in January and I would graduate a year later in May 2022 but I would be able to stay in state and not move at all since the didactic year is online. The actual cost for the programs is almost exactly the same, the only real difference is the graduation dates, location, and the fact that one is online versus in person. How does everyone feel about a program being online in the didactic year? I am pretty conflicted about it but I would very much like to avoid moving out of state if I do not have to but I am worried that I will miss out on in person interactions at the other program. I am really conflicted on what to do here and any thoughts or opinions would be very helpful. Thanks so much!

      Hello, 
      I've been searching for awhile. I tried to apply to a course that was offered at a community college, but my home school took too long processing the paperwork they needed, so my plans fell through. My request is a bit specific. I need an 8 weeks course (or at least one I can complete before May) that is Organic Chemistry II but with no lab portion, as I have already completed that part of the course. The closest I've come is Doane but their course only seems to have the lab portion attached.
      Please and thank you!
      EDIT: Needed to fulfill Bachelor's Degree before going further
