Elective Description

This elective will offer students the opportunity to examine issues in primary care through the reading and discussion of literary selections that focus on relevant topics such as professionalism, aging, resource allocation, and cultural diversity. Attendance at activities and performances that make a connection with the community at large such as Syracuse Stage theater performances, author lectures and readings, films based on literary adaptations and other performances in the arts will be included (choices depend on what is offered at that time). The emphasis of the course is on group participation and discussion.
