SOMGEN 120: Compassion, Dignity and Empathy-Physician Communication Skills (SOMGEN 220)

As medical technology advances, research shows the human touch and the provider-patient interaction retains a critical role in the practice of medicine. This class uses fun and novel techniques to enhance communication skills and build empathy with others. Beyond clinical communication skills, we will learn how to be better communicators of complex medical and scientific skills with broader audiences, including the media. The class will meet with physicians who use social media to improve health literacy and with journalists who transform data into compelling stories about health and medicine.

SOMGEN 150Q: Challenging Sex and Gender Dichotomies in Biology and Medicine

This course explores and challenges the physiological basis for distinguishing human "males" and "females", expands the concepts of "intersex" beyond reproductive anatomy/physiology (i.e. beyond the genitalia), and discusses some known consequences of "gender biases" in medical diagnoses and treatments. The influence of gender (sociocultural) "norms", i.e. gendered behaviors and relations, on human biology is juxtaposed with the role of biological traits on the construction of gender identity, roles and relationships, thereby focusing on the interactions of sex and gender on health and medical outcomes. Problems that may arise by labeling conditions that vary in incidence, prevalence and/or severity across the "male-female" spectrum as "men's" or "women's" health issues will be discussed. In addition, the importance of recognizing the spectrum of sex and gender, as well as sexual orientation, in clinical practice from pediatric to geriatric populations, will be highlighted, with consideration of varying perspectives within different race/ethnic, religious, political, and other groups.

SOMGEN 203: Literature and Writing for Military Affiliated Students

Who gets to tell a war story? Everyone who is affected by war. So everyone. This class will explore short readings of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction written by veterans or influenced by conflict. We will discuss the importance of war writing as a medium of expression for veterans, a means of understanding and reconciliation for civilians, and the ways it has impacted culture as a whole. The work will include short reading assignments, in-class writing prompts and guest speaker(s), such as General Jim Mattis, veteran writer Hugh Martin and others. There will be a final 1,500-word project.No writing experience required or expected.

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.

SOMGEN 288: LitMed: Conversations on Structural Violence and Systemic Racism in Medical Practice

Racism is a public health and health crisis. This reading seminar examines the intersection of race and racism with medical care, drawing on historical, anthropological, sociological, public health, and clinical perspectives. This seminar aims to analyze ongoing system racism that exists in current medical practice, equipping students with the concepts and framework to analyze, discuss, and respond to structural violence and systemic racism and to critique the role of race in clinical practice and medical education. This course hopes to create a community of learners who together understand and critically appraise the structural violence and systemic racism in medicine and to enact change in their personal practice.
