PUBH 5005 - Perspectives on Health and the Developing Scholar-Practitioner


(5 cr.) Students in this course cover the origins and evolution of the concept of health, including some of the important health problems that face the world today and emerging concerns for the future. Students taking this foundational course are introduced to key events in history, as well as some of the health systems and issues that a modern health practitioner may encounter. Strategies for success as a graduate-level scholar and a health practitioner are integrated in a way that provides meaningful context to learners. Students discuss key concepts with peers, and the course culminates with a reflection paper designed to help learners evaluate their professional goals and how to progress as a scholar-practitioner and social change agent. Students explore careers in various public health and health education settings and experience a virtual health department in order to learn about various functions and personnel.
Note about required first courses: Students in the MPH program must receive a B or better in this course.
