    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend taking this course. Professor Szabo was an excellent teacher and made his class fun.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to you philosophical tools (such as, the principles of autonomy, utility, beneficence, and justice) to construct arguments that many face in the medical field. These arguments include, abortion, patient-doctor relationships, euthanasia, etc.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the chapters for the reading quizzes and make sure to ask Professor Szabo questions. He really wants his students to exceed.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    More than likely, at some point in your life, you are going to have to face one of the medical concerns discussed in this class. Even if you are lucky, and you are never going to have to visit a hospital in your entire life, you are going to walk away from this class knowing how to evaluate things from an ethical perspective.

    Course highlights:

    Learning to think critically, through an ethical lens, about some routine and not so routine medical issues. It brings an interesting perspective to hot topics, such as universal health care, physicians assisted suicide, and abortion, by having you read essays from doctors and well-known thinkers and philosophers on both sides of these topics.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go into the class willing to listen to every argument. There will be some topics and issues that are really going to bug you, and there are going to be some essays that you just can't stand to read, because you can't agree with the person writing it. That is part of the fun of this class, because even if you can't bring yourself to agree with someone, you, in a sense, become enlightened, because you can understand how someone on the other side of the argument thinks. Once you do that, you can start to have a real conversation and make progress towards finding an answer.
