SURG 298: Procedure-Based Specialty Capstone Course

Designed for graduating medical students entering a procedure-based internship or residency (e.g. general surgery, surgical sub-specialties, obstetrics-gynecology, anesthesia, and emergency medicine). Prepares students with practical, high-yield clinical and procedural skills. Clinical skills include fielding common calls regarding surgical patients, obtaining informed consent, completing operative dictations, discharging patients, writing prescriptions, running trauma surveys, and interpreting surgically relevant radiology studies. The hands-on portion of the course covers basic open and laparoscopic surgical skills utilizing bench models, laparoscopic box trainers,and full cadaveric simulations. Prerequisite: graduating medical student.

THINK 48: Reading the Body: How Medicine and Culture Define the Self

How have our perceptions of what is considered normal/abnormal; beautiful/ugly; infected/uninfected changed over time? How do these changing medical and cultural representations of the body reflect larger societal shifts? How does illness change our perceptions of our bodies and our identities? Viewed through the lens of medicine, the body is a text that offers clues to health and illness, yet clinical readings are never entirely objective. Culture informs and distorts how we discern, accept, reject, and analyze our bodies. Looking at literary, medical, ethical, and anthropological texts, we ask how representations of the body affects the way we experience illness, embody gender and racial identities, and understand our rights (or lack of rights) to control our own bodies. We will critically examine our perceptions about the body and debate some of the most complex and sensitive issues surrounding the body, from the ethics of medical research trials to end of life decisions. There are two mandatory film screening during the term. The film screenings will be held on Wednesday, May 21 and May 30, 6-8pm in room 380-380C.

UAR 43: LSP: Exploring Research, Writing, and Problem Solving at Stanford

This course is offered in August prior to start of fall quarter for participants of the Leland Scholars Program. This course is comprised of two parallel tracks: one focused on the development and practice of critical problem solving and study skills using wide variety of chemistry examples that illustrate the broad yet integrated nature of science; a second focused on providing an introduction to rhetorical thinking, academic writing, college-level research, and crafting well-reasoned arguments. Based on skills developed in both tracks, students will work in teams to research and present on a current issue revolving around one of five central themes: energy, climate change, water resources, medicine, and food & nutrition exploring their issue from chemical, socioeconomic and cultural perspectives.

WELLNESS 134: Forgiveness Practice and Meditation

Examines forgiveness from a variety of perspectives with an emphasis on its value for physical and mental well-being. Presents forgiveness both as a useful response to interpersonal hurt and a teachable skill, backed by scientific research from preventative medicine and psychology. Explores the idea that forgiveness and grievance are both narrative responses to painful experience, but differ in their adaptability and utility. Spiritual and contemplative approaches to forgiveness will be considered, but the methods are secular and research-tested.
