Course Objectives(from old syllabus)
PhD/ScM students in Bloomberg School of Public Health graduate programs who are taking the School of Medicine (SOM) Core lecture courses are required to take a literature-based discussion class. Therefore, we offer this course for JHSPH students to meet this requirement, and to provide an opportunity for in-depth discussion of current primary literature related to the BCMB/SOM coursework and other topics. This course is also open to other students with permission from the Instructor.
