50:499:101 Introduction to Health Sciences (3) Provides students with an overview of issues central to the health sciences and careers in the field of health. Through the discussion of classic and cutting-edge research, students will develop an appreciation for the vast array of complex issues central to this emerging and applied field. Further, exposure to these topics will prepare students to make informed decisions about their future education and careers.
50:499:120 Medical Terminology (3) This course provides students with the foundation for building a medical vocabulary that is useful for careers across many health care occupations. Students will build on this vocabulary through a study of prefixes, suffixes, and root words used in the medical field, with an emphasis on correct pronunciation, spelling, and usage of medical terms. Students will apply this knowledge to the body's various systems, diseases, and physiology.
50:499:201 Careers in Health Sciences (3) In this course students will explore their own career strengths and interests, gain exposure to a variety of careers and graduate school paths open to people with health sciences degrees, and participate in professional development and graduate school preparation activities.
50:499:303 Health Law (3) This is a survey course of Health Law. Students will explore legal issues in the past, present, and future health care environment. Topics covered include an overview of the U.S. health care system, private and public health insurance, regulation of health care providers and institutions, and health privacy. This course fulfills one of the requirements for the health-law certificate.
