I was looking for a college in the USA during my high school. After completing high school, I shortlisted a bunch of colleges. I researched a bit about shortlisted colleges and realized Central College offers the best course in the field of biochemistry. Then I decided to fill the application form for $25 for the course.
The Course Curriculum is extremely concrete and comprehensive and provides detailed and in-depth knowledge about the various facets of Biomedical Sciences including Molecular and Cellular Basis of Life. Various advanced topics such as Neurobiology, Medical Informatics, Clinical Environment in Healthcare and Nutritional Sciences, etc are also included in my curriculum.
