Many health professions programs require one or two semesters of chemistry as a General, Organic, and Biochemistry (GOB) course. This course has a unique set of challenges for the chemical educator including time management, content expectations by programs, and unprepared students who may not see how chemistry applies to their major. Educators are invited to present on their development/management of course content, assessment of student learning, or evidence-based classroom instructional strategies. This session will conclude with a discussion where the audience and the presenters will identify successful trends in teaching the GOB course.
