It will also focus on the needs, resources and counseling available for special populations including: the aging, HIV/AIDS, victims of assault, combat veterans, physically, emotionally or intellectually challenged individuals, patients or families of patients with genetic basis for disease or disability, or facing end of life issues and the influence that culture and socioeconomic factors can have on healthcare delivery. The purpose of this course is for students to learn about and become comfortable with primary care in medically underserved areas, special needs and diverse populations. After the student researches and defines their meaning of “medically underserved” and “Special Needs Populations,” the student will engage in active learning through the associated practicum. Students will present to the class their experiences with these populations and research potential methods for assessing, planning and implementing treatment for such populations.
