EDE508 Intercultural Communication for Health Care Professionals

This sequence of three fully online one-credit courses (EDE 505, EDE 506, EDE 507) is designed for health care providers who are interested in how the linguistic, cultural, and practical dimensions of working with diverse populations affect accessibility to health care. While each course is related to the others, students can enroll in all three separately or take them as an overarching whole (EDE 508). Each online course will span four weeks, with three synchronous meetings during this time via Zoom, from 7:45-9:00 pm. There are no prerequisites for these courses.

These courses offer an inter-professional learning environment that aims to meet the needs of healthcare providers in effective intercultural communication in order to protect their patients, increase daily operating efficiency and reduce the likelihood of medical errors. Students will reflect on their self-identities and examine themselves through the lens of these courses by paying attention to individual experiences and understanding how their personal and professional identities can be a key factor in the functioning of healthcare teams.
