Teaching Biologically Relevant Chemistry throughout the Four-Year Chemistry Curriculum  Sarah R. Kirk, Todd P. Silverstein, and Jeffrey J. Willemsen
First-year chemistry students learn introductory chemistry using case studies which deal directly with human health issues and biological processes. Second-year students choose between two equivalent versions of the second-semester course: one that stresses synthetic organic chemistry and another that stresses bioorganic chemistry.
