Note: This course will meet General Education "Knowing Ourselves and Others"- Group A. Course Description: This general education course will engage health profession major students in a learning environment, which will foster critical thinking, communication, and personal growth as future healthcare professionals. Socialization is fitting in to an environment through a process of interaction and to become a professional one needs to conform to the technical or ethical standards of a profession. This course offers an opportunity for students to learn about professional socialization through observing and interacting with multi-disciplinary health care professionals such as nurses, therapists, dieticians, diagnostic technicians, and pharmacists. A main focal point of this course is a weeklong 40-hour observation experience for students in health profession majors. Through observation, interaction, and reflection of multi-disciplinary roles students will gain an insight into healthcare professional roles and how they socialize as professionals both within their discipline and as part of a multi-disciplinary health care team. Such insight will have a powerful impact on student?s ability to develop integrity and identify personal values and ethical standards as they prepare for their future as a health care professional.
