PAM 3500 - Contemporary Issues in Women’s Health

(also FGSS 3500 )
Fall. 3 credits.

A. Parrot.

Deals with the history of women in medicine and the historical and cultural treatment of women’s health problems. Also addresses health care research and the exclusion of women from research trials and protocols. Reproductive issues, alternative approaches to treatment, medical problems, ethical issues, cancers, factors that contribute to post-traumatic stress disorders, health promotion behaviors, political issues, and routine medical recommendations are also discussed in depth. Students may take the course for a fifth credit, which requires attending a discussion section every other week and observing 12 facilities (e.g., birthing center, mammogram, and ultrasound center, wellness center, hospital labor and delivery units, La Maze class, women’s self-defense class) that provide a variety of women’s health care. Some of these visits will be virtual visits available through the course web site, others will require in-person attendance.
