Course: MD 560 - Generations

Generations is a seven week course that studies human life cycle development, the male and female reproductive system, age related illnesses, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation and social determinants of health. These areas are covered in tandem with one another, using a chronological approach beginning with the health of the fetus and continuing up through childhood, adolescence, the adult reproductive years, and the geriatric years. Students are introduced to the process of integrating life cycle factors into their consideration of differential diagnoses and their approach to therapeutic care. Lectures, Team Based Learning and pathology labs are supported by small group meetings and workshops. (7 weeks)
