ABSTRACT

Higher medical education in China is dually challenged by inadequate understanding of career motivation among high school graduates and by insufficient self-directed learning capability as a result of long-term exam-based education. Biochemistry and Molecular Biology is one of the most essential basic courses at Fourth Military Medical University (FMMU), but students usually feel torn to deal with it. We have been making efforts to improve teaching efficiency for over twenty years. Our teaching reform involves design of students-centered experimental course, reorganization of theoretical course and attempt to evoke critical thinking in class. A few tips are shared with regards to how to make the course of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology more rewarding.
