Medical Biochemistry has recently undergone a total reformation along with every other science discipline in the Medical Curriculum. The new approach is interdisciplinary. Various aspects of Biochemistry or Molecular Biology content matter are presented in a topic or organ system dependent content. There are seven blocks in the preclinical curriculum:
- Foundations of Medicine
- Immunohematology, Inflammation and Infectious disease
- Cardiopulmonary Renal
- Brain and Behavior
- Endocrinology and Reproductive
As a result, presentation of relevant Biochemistry is spread throughout the curriculum as basic science, clinical applications and case-based analysis in an organ system dependent fashion. Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics and Nutrition are aspects of pf Molecular Medicine in nearly each and every block. These courses are only available to Medical Students enrolled in the George Washington University School of Medicine.
