    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is an introductory course that explores the historical evolution of health care in the United States, its financing sources, technology, delivery of care, and the stakeholders who comprise the health care system. The structure of the health care system, including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, will be discussed along with the various components that influence health care such as legal, ethical, regulatory, and fiscal forces. Students will also explore other health care systems and examine the potential future of health care in the United States

    Course highlights:

    HCA205 is the first course in the Health Care Administration program and is an introductory class for the Health Care Studies, Health and Human Services, and Health Education programs. This course is designed to give students foundational knowledge of the health care delivery system and an understanding of the major factors that affect health care services in the United States. The course introduces students to the historical development, structure, operations, and the current and future direction of the major components of the American health care delivery system. Quizzes will be used to assess knowledge and comprehension of facts learned throughout the class. Other interactive pieces along with role-playing activities within the classroom will be utilized to assess the application of concepts learned about the health care system.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Each week students will participate in online discussions with classmates, which are related to the week’s readings. These discussions replace the interactive dialogue that occurs in the traditional classroom setting. Each week, students’ initial discussion posts are due by 11:59 p.m. (in the time zone in which each student resides) on Day 3 (Thursday). Students will have until 11:59 p.m. on Day 7 (the following Monday) to make the required minimum number of response posts to classmates
