Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because you truly learn a lot of informative information that will stay with you for a long time. It is one of those classes that you just have to pay attention to every single detail and understand it in order to succeed on the exams and other material for the course. There are sometimes visitors who come from universities, hospitals, and clinics and educate us about certain health topics such as cardiovascular disease.
I learned many things from this class but in my opinion, the most memorable topic was about gender differences in health. We learned that, women use more health services compared to men and that gender difference peaks during women’s childbearing years. There are also biases from physicians. There is evidence that healthcare providers respond to men and women differently. Women are more likely than men to receive a prescription for a psychotropic drug like antidepressants and sedatives. Those kinds of drugs are over prescribed to women because healthcare providers are more likely to attribute women’s symptoms to some psychological cause. Men are being under prescribed anti depressants and all the psychotropic drugs. Women are more likely to specifically request these medications . Criteria that health providers use involve things that are less likely for women to experience for example disorderly conduct.

Advice for students:
In order to succeed in this course, it is very important to keep up with the work that is given in class. The notes you take are crucial for the exam because the exam consists of very detailed questions. There are no lecture notes but rather the professor discusses the material while you either type or hand write the notes. I suggest students type the notes on their laptop because with every lecture there are a lot of notes and material to cover therefore it might be a more effective way to note-take by using a laptop/ipad.
