Course Number: HSC464

HEALTH SCIENCES CAPSTONE

This end-of-program capstone course of the BS in Health Science curriculum requires students to demonstrate previously learned knowledge, principles, and skills to analyze health science-based case problems.  Using a variety of case analysis tools, students will analyze cases both as a member of a team and individually and will discuss case studies that examine the professional role in health care.  The individual case analysis will culminate in students preparing and delivering a persuasive presentation using PowerPoint with voice over.  During the last three weeks of the course, students will prepare an individualized professional development plan for use upon completing their academic studies.

Textbooks are generally not required for this course.  However, course materials may update in a given term prior to registration opening.  Students should therefore always review course material requirements and associated costs at our bookstore for the term in which they are registering.

Prerequisite: Students must have completed all other requirements of the health sciences component, completed the written English requirement, and be within 9 credits of completing the arts and sciences component.
