211. Introduction to Health Care, I. (4). (HU).

This course is for undergraduates with an interest in health care and the health sciences. It introduces students to the fundamental concepts behind understandings of health and the theory and practice of health care. Selected literature will raise questions such as: What is health? What is illness? What is a healer? What is health care? Why support or practice health care? Possible answers will be drawn from religious, philosophical, literary, psychological, and historical perspectives. Even more fundamental assumptions underlying health care will be exposed and explored, such as our ideas about personhood, human welfare, death, and the "life force." Because technology has played such a large role in shaping and executing ideas about health care, we will also survey the history of medical technology and address questions regarding its value. Use will be made of guest lecturers, panel discussions, films, and other alternative modes of presentation. Assignments will be divided between formal tests and writing assignments. The formal tests (midterm and final) will cover the course content: readings, lectures, and discussions. The writing assignments will include two research projects and weekly discussion notes.
