    | Would recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the information is very relevant and pertains to a lot of fields in the health department. It is definitely a common topic that people should know more about and in taking this class I have definitely expanded my knowledge of Health Care in the US.

    Course highlights:

    I would say the highlights of this course would be learning how our health care systems compares to other countries, the details of how it works, and where exactly we should improve. I liked how the professor I had was neutral in her own opinions and gave us all the information but definitely pointing out both the good and bad things in our health care systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to definitely prepare to study a lot. There is a lot of information to learn and let me tell you, cramming does not work in this class. I would also say that I am one that would prefer to memorize things but that really doesn't work for this class either; comprehension and understanding the information/concepts is the best way to do well.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course because it teaches you the basics about our health care system. It is all useful information that everyone should know before choosing their insurance plan. Most classes like biochemistry or calculus a lot of students do not need for their majors and will not use the information they learned ever again. However, in this class it educates students on information they will carry with them and use for the rest of their lives. I plan on staying up to date with the health care system because I know when I am older I will need to decide which Medicare plan is best for me.

    Course highlights:

    From taking this course, I have learned the barriers and challenges to the health care system and just how complicated it is. I have also learned all the positives and how much money it can save people in the long run. I believe everyone needs to learn about the health care system because the cost is sky rocketing and our country has the most expensive health care system. Everyone should educate themselves on this matter because one day each of us will need to sign up for a health insurance plan whether it is through our career or through the marketplace.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in the course you need to take initiative and stay on top of things. There is a quiz every week on the material learned not only in class but in learning materials she posts as well. Actually read the text book and go through all of the learning materials in order to better understand the material. The health care system can be very confusing and complicated so it is important that if you do not understand something, to research it until you do understand or ask questions. Also I would recommend not getting behind because it is a lot of information.
