What
This course includes comparisons of non-Western and Western medical systems, definitions of health and disease, cross-cultural variation in health specialists and ways of treatment/healing, and an examination of the problems of medical pluralism and adapting Western biomedicine to the needs of diverse cultural and ethnic groups.  It will include students from both UALR and UAMS, though UAMS students will have different expectations from those of the UALR students given that it is a 2-credit, pass/fail elective for UAMS students.
