This seminar course will be given in parallel with PUBH 5405 with the goal of more in-depth exploration of the topics presented in the survey course. The objective is to gain a more advanced understanding of the concepts and theories in the social and behavioral sciences and their ability to explain patterns of health, illness and health care utilization, practices and policies. In conjunction with the survey course, the biopsychosocial paradigm of health and illness will provide the conceptual framework for integrating the societal, interpersonal, and intrapersonal factors that influence the public's health.
