Medical Biology


Welcome to Medical Science for the 2017-2018 school year! In this syllabus, you will find information about the content of the course, the classroom procedures, and grades and schedule that will be used through the year. This class has two main purposes: to introduce students into the expectations of being a health care professional AND to provide the base knowledge needed for nearly all medical field required courses.
