You will need to obtain the text for LAW & ETHICS FOR MEDICAL CAREERS; 6TH EDITION, JUDSON & HARRISON, PUBLISHER: McGRAW-HILL You must also access Canvas on the internet to have access to required supplementary material for the course.
Each week, I will assign a chapter and exercises in the text to read and review along with online assignments for the chapter on Canvas which will include a learning outcome (a chapter overview), power points, key word definition found on flashcards, and weekly chapter quizzes. The quizzes may be turned in for credit on a weekly basis. You will also receive credit for taking the quiz needed to enter this Canvas course.
It is a requirement that you take the (4) examinations on the Newtown Campus at the testing center at Rollins 100 or at the Perkasie or Bristol campuses. Only your highest (3) exam grades will count.
Further information as to the grade point structure, the due dates for examinations and the weekly assignments will be found on the front page of this online Canvas course. The calendar and messages for this online Canvas course will also provide useful information.
Attendance at weekly classes without 4 or more absences will also earn you points. During class meetings, we will discuss court cases and exercises found in the textbook and review the ethical questions and legal review questions also found in the text.
