    Medicinal chemistry is a field at the intersection of chemistry, biology, physiology, business, and ethics. This is a course for first-year, non-science major undergraduate students exploring the process of rational drug design, from discovery to use by patients. This is a course for first-year, non-science major undergraduate students, based on the course outline described by Wenzel et al.J. Chem. Educ. 202097, 414-420 doi:10.1021/acs.jchemed.9b00691
