Biological Sciences. The Chemical Level of Organization
Welcome to this Biological Sciences module. This module begins by examining elements, and how the structures of atoms determine the characteristics of elements by the number of protons, neutrons, and electrons in the atoms. These elements, in turn, form both the inorganic and organic chemical compounds important to life, including for example water, glucose and proteins. The module then builds the framework of life from there.
The Biological Sciences - The Chemical Level of Organization online learning module has clear and concise aims, objectives and anticipated outcomes, listed below. These will appear on the Dentaljuce Enhanced CPD Certificate, along with the time spent, dates, and detailed topics you studied within the module. Certificates can be printed at any time, covering any range of dates. Dentaljuce CPD complies with the UK GDC's requirements for enhanced verifiable continuing professional development.
Before starting this module, check that the learning outcomes are what you require, and that you have entered the need into your PDP. Here is an example PDP entry for this module.

The aim of the learning and teaching materials in this Dentaljuce module is to allow learners to enhance their basic knowledge of the biological sciences.
• to teach the Chemical Level of Organization of human biological systems
Anticipated learning outcomes:
The learner will be able to:
- Describe the fundamental composition of matter
- Identify the three subatomic particles
- Identify the four most abundant elements in the body
- Explain the relationship between an atom’s number of electrons and its relative stability
- Distinguish between ionic bonds, covalent bonds, and hydrogen bonds
- Explain how energy is invested, stored, and released via chemical reactions, particularly those reactions that are critical to life
- Explain the importance of the inorganic compounds that contribute to life, such as water, salts, acids, and bases
- Compare and contrast the four important classes of organic (carbon-based) compounds—proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids—according to their composition and functional importance to human life
This CPD will support the learner in meeting the following GDC principles and the underlying standards:
• P7: Maintain, develop and work within your professional knowledge and skills
GDC Development Outcomes
