    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor is very knowledgeable and the content is very interesting. This is a philosophy course, so the material is based in part on abstract argumentation. This is in stark contrast with courses in the natural sciences, which makes the course captivating in a different way.

    Course highlights:

    Through this course, students learn to create formalized arguments when discussing controversial or ethically ambiguous topics in medicine. One of the most interesting parts of the course is the discussion of one case (euthanasia) and how multiple ethical frameworks, or ways of thinking, can be applied to make a decision.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the text in detail. The material is covered in the class fairly well, but the textbook provides examples that expand upon the technical material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to pre-med students because it is a good reminder that there are morally complex issues and important aspects of a patient to consider outside all the science and math they are continually focused on.

    Course highlights:

    This course dares the student to unapologetically ponder about the different aspects of health care and what can be feasibly done to improve it. It challenges the student to take a stance on controversial issues and to support it with ethical viewpoints and knowledge of previous cases.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely do the readings from the book; it is quite interesting and will allow you to form well-supported arguments before going to class. Invest yourself in the content so that when the tests come, you are able to give insightful responses - which will make the tests seem much easier!
