Description:
This course provides a comparative overview of the different health care systems in the world. It is designed to introduce the student to issues affecting health care systems and explain why the study of health care is different from other public policy issues. After an introductory portion of the course, the following lectures are divided into three different sections: the health policy process, the specific problem areas of health care, and a sample of heath care systems around the world. Here the students will have the opportunity to learn in depth about the individual health care systems of the countries selected. Finally, the last part of the class will provide a venue for students to get involved in the comparative studies of the countries through the analysis of the success of their health care approaches.
