A single-semester, comprehensive exploration of the fundamental laws, theories and mathematical concepts of inorganic, organic and biological chemistry designed to contain comprehensive information needed for health professions study. The laboratory component of this course is delivered using virtual labs with detailed instruction and demonstrations from an experienced chemist.
