Organic Chemistry Laboratory Boot Camp


With the dissolution of the UW Colleges, there will be no Winterim 2020 sessions offered. Several universities are working together to hopefully keep this course running in the future. We appreciate your patience during this transition process and hope to offer Chemistry Boot Camp in Summer 2020. Please watch for updates here.

Course Description

This course provides the synthetic organic chemistry laboratory experience needed for chemistry and science majors and pre-professional majors in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and chiropractic. This accelerated schedule includes 85 hours of instruction and lab over a two-week period of time.

The goal is to provide a laboratory experience for students who are taking organic chemistry lecture at small campuses via distance education but who do not have access to laboratory instruction. The course will also serve other students who have been unable to complete organic chemistry laboratory.

CHE 352 (CHEM 344 at UW-Madison) includes reactions and techniques typically covered in both semesters of organic chemistry lecture, CHE 343 (CHEM 343 at UW-Madison) and CHE 363 (CHEM 345 at UW-Madison). Students enrolled in CHE 352 are expected to demonstrate an understanding of all reactions and techniques covered in the laboratory, regardless of prior exposure in lecture courses. It is HIGHLY recommended that students have successfully completed both Organic Chemistry I and II lecture courses before taking this CHE 352 organic chemistry lab course.
