HLCR:305 Eastern and Western Health Care.

This course presents an interdisciplinary approach to understanding health care in two different cultures and how those different approaches are currently being integrated in the new field of complementary and alternative medicine. Theories and practices from traditional Chinese medicine and the biomedical model will be reviewed from the integrated perspectives of three disciplines: biology, business and health psychology. Further, given the intricate relationships between health care, economics and finance, consideration of health care economics will be integrated throughout the course.
