X15068: Beyond Medicine: Exploring Inclusivity and Equity in Healthcare in HSSP Summer 2022 (Jul. 09, 2022)
This interdisciplinary course explores healthcare systems from perspectives beyond just medicine. We will start by developing an understanding of health and disease in the human body, followed by sessions on medical research and healthcare systems around the world. We will also think about designing medical devices to be more accessible, as well as learn about the frontiers of AI and machine learning in medicine. The course will end with two sessions exploring the role of storytelling, language, and art in modern medical practice. Throughout the course, we will closely examine where healthcare leaves patients out and think about ways to implement equitable and inclusive changes.
