SOMGEN 272: Narrative Ethics and Medicine

In this course, we will read seminal contributions to the theory and practice of narrative ethics and narrative medicine, with a number of central questions in mind: how, for instance, does literature aid in the understanding of clinical experience? what are the connections between ethics, literary rewriting, and clinical review? in what ways has medicine remained a form of art, and why should providers of care be asked to read fiction, drama, or poetry? We will select theory from physicians (Rita Charon, Arthur Kleinman), recipients of care (Arthur Frank, Susan Sontag, Harriet McBryde), literary critics (WC Booth, JH Miller, Elaine Scarry), and philosophers on narrative (Martha Nussbaum, Judith Butler). We will also select literary readings from practitioners of literature and medicine, which may include Anton Chekhov, William Carlos Williams, Richard Selzer, Oliver Sacks, Perri Klass, Anne Fadiman, Margaret Edson, Jean-Dominique Bauby, and Abraham Verghese. Our seminar discussion and analysis will therefore focus on a history of attempts in the field to re-examine clinical cases, with literary attention as a central mode of ethical practice and care.

SOMGEN 275: Leading Value Improvement in Health Care Delivery

Successful leaders on the journey to better care delivery methods with lower total spending inevitably face pivotal crises. What confluence of attitude, strategy, and events allows them to prevail? Contexts will include entrepreneurship and early stage investing, spread of higher value care delivery innovations, health care delivery system management, and private and public policy making to reward value. Guest faculty will include nationally recognized leaders and change agents, who will invite students to recommend alternative approaches to managing pivotal challenges. The course is open to any member of the Stanford community aspiring to lead higher value in health care delivery including graduate students, undergraduates, and postdoctoral candidates, as well as medical center residents and clinical fellows.

SOMGEN 282: The Startup Garage: Design (CHEMENG 482)

(Same as STRAMGT 356) The Startup Garage is an experiential lab course that focuses on the design, testing and launch of a new venture. Multidisciplinary student teams work through an iterative process of understanding user needs, creating a point of view statement, ideating and prototyping new product and services and their business models, and communicating the user need, product, service and business models to end-users, partners, and investors. In the autumn quarter, teams will: identify and validate a compelling user need and develop very preliminary prototypes for a new product or service and business models. Students form teams, conduct field work and iterate on the combination of business model -- product -- market. Teams will present their first prototypes (business model - product - market) at the end of the quarter to a panel of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors and faculty.

SOMGEN 284: The Startup Garage: Testing and Launch (CHEMENG 484)

This is the second quarter of the two-quarter series. In this quarter, student teams expand the field work they started in the fall quarter. They get out of the building to talk to potential customers, partners, distributors, and investors to test and refine their business model, product/service and market. This quarter the teams will be expected to develop and test a minimally viable product, iterate, and focus on validated lessons on: the market opportunity, user need and behavior, user interactions with the product or service, business unit economics, sale and distribution models, partnerships, value proposition, and funding strategies. Teams will interact with customers, partners, distributors, investors and mentors with the end goal of developing and delivering a funding pitch to a panel of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, angel investors and faculty.
