Hospitals, Health Care Services and Access: Interdisciplinary Course

The healthcare services landscape is shifting. Hospitals, which were the foundation of American healthcare, have to reconfigure their organizations and services.  Satellite offices, acute care locations, and even pharmacies are offering more services to increasingly stratified patient consumers. This interdisciplinary course offers graduate students across the University the opportunity to examine closely the complexity of today's health care services and the necessarily multiple perspectives from which we view, think, and work in healthcare settings.
