Phcy 606: Population and Rural Health
The purpose of this course is to introduce student pharmacists to population health – that is, the health outcomes of a group of individuals, including the distribution of such outcomes within the group at local, national, and international levels. This course will also examine the rural burden of disease including health profile, determinants of rural health, and strategies to improve rural population health. The focus of this course is on pharmacists’ roles in population and rural health outcomes, identifying and addressing patterns of health determinants, and policies and interventions that link these topics. Students will learn from diverse scholars and practitioners through readings, facilitated discussions, guest lectures, and panel presentations. One of the major goals of the course will be to enable students to apply the concepts underlying the trends in health care to the health status of populations in their clinical settings as well as in integrated delivery systems of the future.
