Individual Courses

HMX Physiology

Learn foundational concepts in physiology and see how the material is used in taking care of patients. This course focuses on principles that are important for understanding multiple organ systems and covers Partial Pressure, Movement of Body Fluids, Flow Through Tubes, Compliance, Supply and Demand, Transmural Pressure, Dynamic and Steady State Conditions, Acid–Base, Homeostasis, and Exercise – Integration. A solid understanding of physiology is important to practicing medicine, and HMX Physiology brings an added dimension even if you are already taking a standard physiology or combined anatomy & physiology course.

This course is part of the HMX Fundamentals series.

 

HMX Immunology

Learn foundational concepts in immunology and gain a basis for understanding a broad range of medical conditions. This course focuses on principles important for understanding innate and adaptive immunological responses. Lessons include an Overview of Immunology and the Immune System, Innate Immunity and Inflammation, Microbial Recognition and Responses, Antibodies – Structure and Function, Lymphocyte Development and Diversity, T Cell Activation by Antigens, T Cell-Dependent B Cell Responses, Helper and Cytotoxic T Cells, Failures of the Immune System, and Novel Immune Therapies. A solid understanding of immunology is becoming increasingly important in medicine, as more therapies target the immune system and more diseases are known to have an immunologic basis.

This course is part of the HMX Fundamentals series.

 

HMX Genetics

Learn foundational concepts in genetics and gain new insight into the rapidly evolving field of genomics. This course spans the field from basic to advanced genetics. Lessons include an Overview of Genetics, The Central Dogma and Genetic Variation, Mendelian Inheritance of Disease, Identifying Mendelian Disease Genes, Chromosomal Aberrations, The Genetics of Cancer, Common Complex Traits, Human Population Genetics, Beyond the Genome Sequence, and Genetics and Precision Medicine. Most conditions have some genetic basis, and a scientific revolution enabled by genomic technologies is changing the way that many diseases are diagnosed and treated as well as providing insight into health, risk factors, and disease prevention. A solid understanding of genetics has never been more important for the practice of medicine.

HMX Biochemistry

Learn foundational concepts in biochemistry and gain a new appreciation for how this field applies to human health and disease. This course focuses on the foundational principles and themes in biochemistry, spanning from the molecular up to the whole organism. Lessons include an Overview of Biochemistry, The Rules of Energy, How Energy is Harnessed, How Energy is Transformed, How Cells Compartmentalize, How Cells Specialize, How Cells Communicate, and The Chemistry of Life. A solid understanding of biochemical principles is essential for the practice of medicine, because so many different diseases and therapies have a basis in chemistry and the interactions of molecules.

Course Bundles

HMX Immunology and HMX Genetics

Take these two courses at the same time for a reduction on overall tuition. Advances in genetics and immunology are leading to an improved understanding of disease, and translating into better diagnostics and treatments. With this course bundle, you will gain an understanding of these rapidly evolving fields and how they relate to the practice of medicine.

HMX Physiology and HMX Biochemistry

Take these two courses at the same time for a reduction on overall tuition. Most disease processes have a physical and a molecular basis. With this course bundle, you will gain an understanding of how the basic sciences relate directly to the practice of medicine.

 

HMX Physiology, HMX Immunology, HMX Genetics, HMX Biochemistry

Take all four HMX Fundamentals courses at the same time for a reduction on overall tuition.
