Thinking About Thinking About Healthcare? Winter 2023

This is not the current course catalog

Class Details

This class will focus on current topics in healthcare (e.g. burnout, health disparities, holistic therapies, communication, health literacy) with the primary objective aimed at exploring career options within the larger healthcare setting. Required reading, viewing, and/or listening assignments will inform classroom discussions. Relevant readings will be taken from books, academic journals, and periodicals. Students will be asked to write weekly reflections that will be used as a tool to contextualize course content and note areas that are of particular interest (or disinterest). Classes will be held primarily in person on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evenings between 7 and 9 pm with a (non-mandatory) field trip to a local mobile health van at a time and date to be determined (likely on a weekday during business hours). Selected scheduled classes may be held remotely via Zoom as needed. In-person class time will consist of a combination of short lectures, classroom discussion, and invited talks by individuals who are currently working or who have extensive experience in a broad spectrum of healthcare fields. This class is best suited for any student who is interested in pursuing a career or advanced degree in a healthcare or healthcare adjacent field, or students who are interested in learning about the wide variety of health-related careers that are possible. However, anyone with an interest in healthcare is encouraged to sign up.
