Challenges in Healthcare is a collaborative effort between The Honors College and the FIU Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine faculty, to expose premedical students to all facets of healthcare.
Challenges in Healthcare begins with the physician and his/her knowledge, skills and attributes. It then continues with the physician’s interaction with the patient, with the community, and with healthcare systems. By the end of the course, students will not only understand the physician in the context of community (locally, nationally and globally) and healthcare systems, but will also be better prepared to be a successful medical school applicant and an eventual culturally competent physician. The course is taught with lectures, interactive exercises and group projects.
