J. Student Evaluation 1. Health Policy Team Debate (13 points): Most weeks, for the last half-hour of class, we will have a team-based point/counterpoint debate on an assigned health policy topic relevant to the material covered in the previous class. Two teams will orally present prepared opposing arguments based on scientific evidence available in the literature. Each team will present for seven minutes, followed by twelve minutes of question and answer, then two minutes per team for closing statements. At the end of class, the teams will hand in their typewritten argument, which should include references and should be no more than two pages in length, double-spaced, in 12 point font, exclusive of references. 2. Midterm Examination (30 points): There will be a Midterm Examination consisting of 40-50 multiple choice questions. The focus of the exams will be on the interpretation of concepts discussed in class, excluding debates. The instructors will conduct a review session one week before each exam, which students will be encouraged to attend. Students will earn a maximum of 30 course points on this exam. In addition to material covered in class, the Midterm examination will include questions about key stakeholder organizations which play a direct role in the administration, delivery, or financing of healthcare in the United States. During the first week of class, you will be provided with a list of stakeholders you should know for the Midterm and should prepare for the exam by reviewing these organizations’ websites as well as by reading an assigned chapter from McCarthy et al on US healthcare stakeholders (to be posted on the course Blackboard site). 3. Quiz (15 points) will consist of 15-20 questions in multiple choice or true/false format and will include topics covered after the midterm, excluding debates. 4. Policy Analysis Team Project (20 points): This assignment will foster students’ abilities to work in teams, and will cultivate oral and written communication skills. Each team will consist of 4-5 students. To complete this project, the students will need to conduct a policy analysis on a major issue relevant to pharmacy practice. To complete the policy analysis, each team will need to examine the assigned issue from the perspective of all relevant healthcare stakeholders, and present recommendations for addressing the issue. The requirements for the project are as follows: - Each team will be required to submit one report that represents their combined effort, which should be approximately 10-15 pages, double-spaced, in 12 point font.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
