SOMGEN 207: Theories of Change in Global Health (INTLPOL 291, PUBLPOL 291)

Organizations dedicated to improving global health deploy various approaches ranging from efforts to improve economic conditions, health systems, and technology to policy change and advocacy. This course critically evaluates 15 common theories of change that underlay global health interventions. Students will review and discuss examples of both success and failure of each theory of change drawn from various disciplines. This seminar is appropriate for graduate students of any discipline who are interested in considering the range of approaches and their likely utility when considering a specific global health problem in a particular location. Upper-class undergraduates who have completed rigorous related coursework and who are willing to commit the preparatory time are welcome. Our discussions benefit greatly from diverse perspectives. Sign up for 3 unit credits to participate in the seminar or 4 units to participate in the seminar and complete a project that provides an opportunity to apply these ideas to a global health problem of your interest.

SOMGEN 213: The Art of Observation: Enhancing Clinical Skills Through Visual Analysis

Offers medical students the opportunity to enhance their observational and descriptive abilities by analyzing works of art in the Stanford museums. Working with the Cantor Arts Center staff and Stanford Art History PhD candidates, students spend time in each session actively looking at and describing works in the gallery. Discussion with medical school faculty follows, providing a clinical correlate to the gallery session. Classes interrogate a different theme of medical observation and clinical practice and includes opportunities for an applied clinical session in the hospital with course-affiliated physicians.

SOMGEN 214: Intro to Specialty Career Selection: Exploring Residency Specialty Selection with Career Advisors

Are you intimidated by the number of specialty choices out there? Do you want to feel more confident when answering the dreaded question, "What kind of doctor do you want to be?" The School of Medicine Center for Specialty Career Advising is offering a 2-quarter seminar series highlighting the different specialty career choices offered for your residency training. We recognize that undergraduates and medical students may have a general idea of what field of medicine they might be interested in pursuing, but often aren't exposed to the vast number of choices until later in their clinical years. This series will feature 20 different and popular specialties. Each week, we will highlight a different specialty through a seminar led by the Specialty Career Advisor (SCA) in that field of medicine. Each SCA is carefully selected as an expert and mentor in that field and will provide you with an overview of what to expect should you choose that specialty. Each overview will also provide a next steps framework to learn more about the field with ample time for Q&A. There is no better time to start exploring than now! This series is a Pass-Fail attendance only course.
