Biochemistry for Pre-Meds

by Oregon State University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This is a biochemistry course taught at Oregon State University by Dr. Kevin Ahern that is aimed at students seeking careers in the health professions - medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and optometry.  This iOS course includes 52 complete video lectures of approximately 50 minutes each on 30 topics spanning biochemistry. The course is a two term series at OSU and the content for these courses has been combined into a single course for iTunes U.  The OSU course uses the Biochemistry, 7th Edition textbook by: Berg, Tymoczko, and Stryer.  To save students the expense of purchasing textbooks, my wife (Indira Rajagopal) and I have created a free textbook called "Biochemistry Free and Easy" that is also useful for the course, though it is not as extensive as the book above.  

"Biochemistry Free and Easy" and is available for free on iTunes through the following URL -

This course also features the very popular Metabolic Melodies available for free download at

Online (for credit) OSU courses covering this material are available for credit through OSU's ecampus HERE and HERE
