This course is intended for students considering a career in a health profession and designed to help them acquire perspectives to facilitate their decision-making process. A number of health care professionals visit the class and share their educational and professional experiences. Students become acquainted with the prerequisites for professional and graduate schools and spend time with dental, medical, osteopathic, nursing, and public health students. We consider problems facing the health professions in the 21st century: problems of health care delivery; the high cost of medical care and prescription drugs; and the effects on the uninsured (43 million plus people) and the underinsured. We discuss issues related to malpractice and death and dying. Students are expected to respond in writing and in class to visitors, to reading materials, and to films.

A course pack containing the syllabus is required. All students are responsible for taking definite steps toward the development of their own goals through a self-inventory of their values, skills, and interests, and through a term paper exploring a possible career direction. Evaluation is based on class attendance and participation in discussions and the completion of all reading and writing assignments. Interested students must contact the instructor or a CSP counselor at CSP, G 155 Angell, to receive an override.

The class meets on-campus Monday 3-5 and on Thursday 7-9 p.m. at 2130 Dorset Rd, Ann Arbor. Dorset Rd. is about a mile from campus; a map will be available at CSP. Students are responsible for their own transportation to the first Thursday evening session, when rides will be arranged for the remainder of the term. Students who will have conflicts with the Thursday evening meeting should not enroll in the class, for the work we do on Thursday evenings is essential to the successful completion of the course work and is not available in a text book.
