One full-year course in General Biology/Zoology including laboratory session; one full-year course in Humanities or Social Sciences [or two semester-long courses from two separate disciplines]; the equivalent of two full-year courses from the following Chemistry courses: i) General Biochemistry without laboratory session, ii) General Chemistry with laboratory session, iii) Organic Chemistry with laboratory session. Medical students must have completed a Basic Rescuer Level C [Adult, Child, and Infant] CPR course within a year prior to registration in the medical program.

Career Step’s training programs are offered entirely online, and the school is committed to helping each enrolling student graduate and successfully transition to a rewarding career.
It is clear that online instruction is effective and scalable. For example, one university`s computer science department has shifted several courses to instruction using 15-to-20-minute video segments with quizzes to engage students and test their comprehension. Professors are then using class time to challenge students with hands-on exercises, and class attendance has increased substantially. Off campus, three computer science courses, offered free, have been viewed by more than 400,000 enrollees from around the world. A meta-analysis published by the Department of Education has concluded that “on average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction,” with even bigger effects when the online learning was combined with face-to-face instruction.
There is no doubt that online learning can boost engagement and retention. Medical students who are learning critical biochemical material by watching short videos as many times as they need in order to learn the subject will surely pass the relevant test. And they can do so in the comfort of their own personal space. Then, in class, the students participate in discussions and share information. The relevant subject — which looks dry in a textbook — suddenly comes to life.
