PH 148 International Perspectives on Health Care Systems (Elective Short Course)

This course provides an examination of the U.S. health care system through a comparison with other countries.  This critique will challenge the student’s view of U.S. health care (The U.S. may do better than you think!) and will establish a foundation for further inquiry into non U.S. health care systems. By the end of the course, students will be able to identify promising ideas that could be applied to the U.S. Students will also understand generalizable concepts of health systems that are necessary to work or learn in international settings.  Each class session will discuss a particular country.  In class exercises, students will use data from the OECD and other sources to develop quantitative descriptions of health care across countries.  Out of class assignments will include reading, viewing video clips, and three essays on assigned topics.  This class is intended to accommodate a broad range of interests and learning styles.
