HIS 368 - Issues in American Medicine

2012-2013 Catalog Year

This course examines the American medical system, and how the medical care received today is a legacy of the system’s evolution in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Alternative medical treatments and questions about the value of medical technology have long been concerns in our health care system. The notion of who or what is healthy is influenced by geography, race, gender, and ethnic class. Combined, these many factors also affect the care one might receive, in the nineteenth or the twenty-first century.

PREREQ: Upper division standing.

credit: 3
