Add a comment

Are you curious about just exactly what “social medicine” means?  This course was designed to answer that question.  The Social Medicine Elective was organized by Drs. Timothy Holtz and Alyssa Finlay and – as can be seen by the titles – covers an array of topics. You can download the course lectures as PowerPoint™ presentations.  The presentations on our website are from the 2005 and 2006 course; the course was not taught in 2008.  For more information, please contact Dr. Timothy Holtz.
