    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course not only for students who want to pursue health care, but also for students who find themselves lost for answers or have not had a time to reflect on controversial ethical issues. It is inspiring to read and discuss about what other students and authors have to say about particular issues. By the end of the course, you feel like you can write an essay on a heavy topic and sound logical and intelligent, considering all possible arguments and confrontations and providing premises that follow your conclusion.

    Course highlights:

    I enjoyed learning about heavy controversial topics and to find the underlying issue with morality. My favorite topic was passive and active euthanasia or physician assistant suicide. I learned that the real issue with legalizing assisted death does not concern why or why not it is moral, but that there is a large slippery slope justified by the same reasons which will then interfere with morality. If we allow someone who is terminally ill and competent to physicially take medication to die, would it be just to not allow a patient who is terminally ill and suffering but is physically incapable of taking a drug? Then some might agree that there should be provided a lethal injection for those who are incapable of physically taking the drug, but if you allow this then what about infant patients who are in lots of pain and suffering but cannot articulate or request for a lethal injection. Would it be permissible then? The boundaries will be pushed if this is universally legalized. Even if you agree with all of these scenarios that assisted death would be permissible, eventually for the same reasons, a situation will come when how can we measure someone's suffering. How would we be able to determine when there is enough suffering or too much suffering? This particular view was so inspiring for me because it provided so much detail and was logical.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all of the assigned work, even if it is optional or if the professor decides to drop a few grades. Take strong notes about main points and the authors conclusion. Give yourself a chance to decide whether or not you agree with the author and critic the essay. It is not only interesting, but you will stay caught up and when it is time to study for the midterm and final, it will not be as difficult.
