UC 105-106 are the core courses for HSSP. Issues facing future health care providers that will be addressed in class include the balancing 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 your professional involvement in health care and science by encouraging your informed consideration of the complexity of health and health care, developing challenges in the fields, and the spectrum of health professions. You will explore the major themes of the course by examining the following questions: What are the relative contributions to human health and illness from genetics, behavior, and the environment? How do the ethical dilemmas engendered by technologic innovations affect the freedom of scientists to develop, and practitioners to utilize, these technologies? 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 your consideration of your future professional lives?
