Perspectives on Health and Health Care is the required core course for members of the Health Sciences Scholars Program. UC 105 and 106 together provide a contextual examination of professional roles and disciplines within health science and care, the science informing those roles, and the issues challenging professionals. These issues include the balance of "nature and nurture," health and the environment, technology and ethics, the allocation of resources, the relationship between personal autonomy and health, and the nature of human relationships within the system of health care. Practitioners from many disciplines within the health sciences will present case studies illustrating these themes. This content provides a foundation for professional involvement in health care and science by encouraging an informed consideration of the complexity of health, developing challenges, and the spectrum of health professions.

Students will examine the major themes of the course by exploring the following questions:

  • What are the relative contributions to human health and illness from genetics, behavior, and the environment?
  • Should scientists develop, and practitioners utilize, technologic innovations knowing that this research and the use of the technologies will engender ethical dilemmas?
  • At what point does our desire to provide the best possible health care to all persons conflict with the limits of our resources and other needs of society?
  • What are the rights and responsibilities of individuals with regard to maintaining their own health, and how might these clash with the corresponding rights and responsibilities of health care providers and society?
  • How do the norms and values of different health disciplines relate to the need to provide coordinated, collegial, evidence-based health care?
  • How do these issues play out in students' consideration of their future professional lives?
