Critical Dialogue Course

Our Critical Dialogue course is a semi-structured, face-to-face format in which students of diverse backgrounds and identities come together to examine issues that cut across many aspects of their lives and invariably how these experiences impact on healthcare and disparities. Specifically, the goal of PMAD 387 CD course is to facilitate an understanding between social/cultural groups to better address the needs of a diverse patient population.  As future healthcare professionals this understanding becomes even more important to ensure more effective patient care. In this class, we will explore your experiences based on the intersection of race, gender and social class.

Below is a link to a video of students talking about their experience taking this course.
