SOMGEN 160: Flip the Script

This course is a sexual assault resistance education course designed specifically for university women. The course is based on theory, research evidence, and best practices for helping women resist acquaintance sexual assault. The course consists of four core components in which information is provided and skills are taught and practiced, with the goal of being able to asses risk, overcome barriers in acknowledging danger, and engage in effective verbal and physical self-defense. The social script we too often hear says:nWomen should live in constant fear of sexual violence. nWomen must sacrifice their freedom to dress how they want, go where they want, and socialize how they want to avoid sexual assault. nIf a woman is sexually assaulted, she is at least partially to blame. nIt is a man's responsibility to initiate the sexual activity that he wants. nnDo you think this social script is wrong? We sure do. Let's flip the script. nnThis class will have one lecture during the first week of classes (specific time and class location will be set by your section instructor). Then this course will break into sections.

SOMGEN 218: Walk With Us: An Interprofessional Education Experience

The health of patients, families, and communities is improved through interprofessional teamwork. High qualify care and safe patient outcomes are achieved when professionals from many disciplines work collaboratively and synergistically towards common goals, yet interprofessional education has not been historically offered in professional education. The purpose of this medical student elective is to pair medical students with interprofessional colleagues working in a wide variety of practice settings with real patients. These observational experiences will be based off the Medical Student Pre-Clerkship Curriculum so that the areas selected for the week will be matched to the weekly observational experience.
