New Honors Course Offered in Autumn 2016

Primary Care Across Countries—Honors (PUBHHMP 4660H/HTHRHSC 4660H) will be offered in Autumn 2016. Chemistry and Biochemistry students pursuing graduate school, professional school, or looking to work in the medical or health fields may be particularly interested in this course.

Topics include the exploration of why access to high-quality health care is important for the overall heath of the population, and understanding how different countries practice primary care. Students will look in-depth at countries-including Australia, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, and United Kingdom-to gain an understanding and respect for the multifaceted face of primary care systems in light of political, economic, cultural, social, and historical contexts. Finally, students will look at the outcomes these systems have on various aspects of society.
