GCD 3035 - Culture, Identity & Precision Medicine

Description
Working effectively across cultural differences is essential to healthcare. As we reduce healthcare disparities and improve access to treatment, cultural competence will only become more important. This course will explore issues of culture and identity (broadly defined) relevant to the practice of precision medicine (the practice of using genomic information to predict risk, inform diagnosis, and plan treatment for medical issues). Examples of the intersections of culture/identity and precision medicine include incorporating religious beliefs and traditions into treatment or prevention recommendations, how to document gender inclusively and accurately in medical records, underrepresentation of minority groups in research databases, and identifying systemic barriers to access. Students will cultivate a better understanding of their own intersectional identity, build language to effectively address cultural differences in healthcare interactions, and critically assess the research and practice of genomic healthcare. This course is open to all students interested in culture and identity in healthcare, as the lessons will translate to all allied health fields.
