Description

Class Experience

Students will increase their critical thinking, medical knowledge, and general understanding of bodily functioning. They will also gain a fascination and appreciation for the mystery of the human body and all that is yet unexplained in modern medicine.
I have long been fascinated with unique medical mysteries, both as a child and now as a nurse. I look forward to sharing my enthusiasm with my students and encouraging medical rationales.
None. This class is meant to stimulate interest and provoke enjoyment.
A copy of each powerpoint presentation with the case details will be included after the day's class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
None
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Content will be kept in medical terms with clear descriptions. That means that, yes, we may learn that someone's innards dissolved and turned into fat, or that one of the men featured above ate a live cat. These incidents will not be described in gory detail; rather, they are kept on as the facts of this case. Pathophysiology is not always pretty!
