    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I learned to write with a purpose and critically question everything I read.

    Course highlights:

    The interesting and relevant readings were key to the learning as well as the writing intensive assignments which were of complex topics that confined one to a short length of 500 words. It forced you to need no "fluff" and to write succinctly.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely ask your teaching assistant for help by emailing or going to office hours, especially with the writing. You can submit drafts early for extra credit so I highly recommitted taking advantage of those points. You can also earn extra points for not using direct quotes which enhances your writing skills for the future while boosting your grade in the course.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The material in this class is very interesting and everyone should know about the healthcare and health insurance topics that are covered. Dr. Gerald is obviously very educated and keeps lectures interesting by always making jokes, even though no one laughs. If you do your work and meet with the TA's grading your assignments it is an easy A.

    Course highlights:

    This class goes into depth about health insurance and how monthly premiums are priced with the different plans. The policies and qualifications of medicare/medicaid are discussed which is an interesting topic to learn about. Dr. Gerald talks about what is learned in Medical school and the pay of every kind of doctor. Everything about the pharmaceutical industry is a huge chunk of the class as well.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Before class I would write out the entire PowerPoint, separating slides, on a google doc and then during class for each slide I would write out what he talked about because the quizzes involve alot that is not on the slides but that he lectures about. I reread my notes before tests and quizzes. Meet with your TA for the written assignments and take advantage of the extra credit.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is an interesting take on the US health care system. The teacher Dr Gerald has years of experience examining the subject, and does well in presenting it to the class.

    Course highlights:

    The section on for profit organ donation was extremely interesting. The morality of it coupled with real life examples of people who had gone through it.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do all of the extra credit, there is a good amount. Do the writings ahead of time and submit them to your TA for review.
