Pre-Clinical Department - Biochemistry

Department of Biochemistry

The general objective of the Curriculum of Dubai Medical College for Girls has been defined in this part of the preliminary plan as follows:

Medical students who acquire a sound knowledge of biochemistry will be in a position to confront, in practice and research, the two central concerns of the health sciences:

  • ·  The understanding and maintenance of health
  • ·   The understanding and effective treatment of disease.

Biochemical studies have illuminated many aspects of health and disease, and, conversely, the study of various aspects of health and disease has opened up new areas of biochemistry. This relationship between medicine and biochemistry has important philosophical implications for the former. As long as medical treatment is firmly grounded in a knowledge of biochemistry and other relevant basic sciences, (e.g. physiology, microbiology, nutrition), the practice of medicine will have a rational basis that can be adapted to accommodate new knowledge. As all diseases are manifestations of abnormalities of molecules, chemical reactions, or processes.

Course Contents

The course of biochemistry consists of the following:

  • Lecturing programme.
  • Teacher centered tutorials.
  • Students centered seminars and presentations.
  • Visual material; transparencies, PowerPoint and board work
  • Demonstrations for some practical work.
  • Practical programme.

Course Objectives

The objectives of biochemistry course are categorized as Ultimate and Terminal 

Ultimate objectives are those to be fulfilled by the end of the course, while the terminal objectives are those connected with various parts of the course

Ultimate Objectives - GOALS

  • Our main goal is to provide a condensed curriculum of strong basic biochemistry and molecular biology and try to confirm ethical principles to prepare the students for adopting professional standards and outstanding clinical training.
  • We focus on enabling the student to accelerate their learning of biochemistry through preparing topics and discussing with tutors during and after delivery.
  • At the end of the first semester the students should demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the chemical structures, and functions of all biomolecules present in the living organisms.
  • At the end of the second semester the students should be able to demonstrate knowledge, understanding and applications of metabolic processes occurring in the living cell and how they impact on different disease states.
  • The students are introduced into the basic concepts of molecular biology including DNA replication, transcription, protein synthesis, and basic techniques utilized for DNA cloning and diagnosis of genetic disorders.
