Collaboration with The Honors College: Honors College Courses
One of the ways in which HWCOM collaborates with The FIU Honors College is through teaching a course entitled: Challenges in Healthcare (IDH 3034 and IDH 3035).
FIU Honors College Courses
Two sequential elective courses available through the FIU Honors College (Challenges in Healthcare I [IDH 3034] and Challenges in Healthcare II [IDH 3035]) provide opportunities for FIU undergraduate students to satisfy an FIU undergraduate requirement for “global learning” while exploring health-related topics such as the history of medicine, infections in a global historical context, social determinants of health, medical ethics, and a variety of other topics of interest to students who may later pursue advanced degrees in health professions. Innovative pedagogical strategies are utilized to raise students’ awareness of the interrelatedness of local, global, international, and intercultural issues. The interdisciplinary nature of The Honors College facilitates students’ ability to develop a multi-perspective analysis of local, global, international, and intercultural problems, as well as their willingness engage in problem solving in diverse settings.
