Description
The goal of the medical system is to provide equal and optimal care for patients of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This course will give the student some idea of the range of cultural behaviors and the need to understand differing patients' actions from the perspective of the healthcare provider. Students will also explore some alternatives when it comes to providing culturally competent empathy. The purpose of this class is to increase the student's familiarity and comfort with concepts of cultural analysis, and to show how these notions can increase awareness and understanding of others', as well as their own life experiences in the healthcare setting.
