HE 4080 Practicing Medicine: Health Care Culture and Careers
This course of study offers students an academically sound systematic approach to shadowing through the use of ethnographic methods and experiential learning theory with a focus on the social determinants of health. Students will gain insights into the 21st century's central components of medical practice and culture, patient and physician diversity, the communicative processes involved in crossing cultural boundaries, and the social determinants of health. Students use the provided textual sources to orient themselves, take turns reporting and discussing chosen content during seminars, and putting into practice what they have learned by using social media sources for carrying out an ethnographic enquiry into COVID-19 and the social determinants of health. Exposure to the use of ethnographic methods enables premeds to grasp the skills required in medical practice in their curative work and its relationship to the social determinants of health as the root causes of illnesses.
