Course: MD 560 - Human Development and Reproductive Health
Human Development and Reproductive Health 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. (6.5 credit hours)
