Spring 2017 Introductory Public Health Class SEATS AVAILABLE

SEMINAR ON SOCIAL, POLITICAL AND ETHICAL ISSUES IN HEALTH AND MEDICINE

Public Health 116.001 Class Number 32501
Monday 4pm-6pm, with discussion sections
Dr. Malcolm Potts

Looking for an extra 3 units? Interested in public health, ethical issues, or being taught by an AWESOME undergraduate student?? Want guaranteed enrollment and internship opportunities in health?

Public Health 116 is a 3-unit course that introduces students to broad ethical issues in public health. This is an introductory course and is open to students across all majors. Many topics in the course are interdisciplinary and assignments often value the input of different academic perspectives.

In addition to being an ELECTIVE for the public health major, public health 116 qualifies students to apply to two internship programs: Field Study Internship (FSI) and Health Service Internship (HSI). FSI and HSI are highly competitive programs that place former public health 116 students into Bay Area internships; FSI places students with physicians and doctors across all medical practices, and HSI placed students with nonprofits and public health organizations. Both programs are only available to former students of Public Health 116.

Our class meets Monday from 4-6 PM, and has a 1 hour discussion section each week. We have more than enough space, and every student that enrolls is guaranteed placement in the class (up to 200). We encourage you to apply! Thousands of public health students over the past 12 years have taken this course, and have learned how to engage with difficult ethical dilemmas in public health.

The CCN is 32501, YOU CAN ENROLL IMMEDIATELY!

Please come to our first lecture on Monday, from 4-6 PM, in Pauley Ballroom. We will discuss the course, introduce our undergraduate Teacher Scholars that lead discussion section, and feature our first lecturer for the semester. We look forward to seeing some of you there!

***some students may know that Public Health 116 satisfied the Philosophy and Values breadth requirement in the past. We have applied for this requirement again and hope to have our breadth status restored. more info on this Monday!
