General method of instruction
Speakers from the University of Washington and elsewhere will present their latest research or other activities of interest to Pathobiology, Global Health, and the School of Public Health. Laboratory and clinical research will be emphasized, however presentations in the areas of public and global health will also be included. In total, there will be 3 to 5 seminars per quarter.
Class assignments and grading
Enrollees must attend all scheduled seminars each quarter. Exceptions will be made only for unusual and unavoidable conflicts. Within one week after each scheduled seminar, students must record their attendance (or their reasons for not attending) on line in a Catalyst survey page (URL to be announced). In addition to attending seminars, each student will write a <1-page (single space) discussion of ONE Pathobiology seminar of his/her choice per quarter. It is not necessary to summarize the seminar content in detail, however the discussion must include at least 1 paragraph summarizing what the student would consider to be the next steps in the research or projects under discussion. Discussions in electronic or paper form must be submitted to the Instructor by 1 week after the last scheduled seminar or by the end of Finals week, whichever comes first. Discussions will be read and graded by the Instructor.
