Community Based Mentoring for Resident Physicians Community Based Mentoring for Resident Physicians

Description

Content Type:  Resource Preventive medicine can be approached in various ways, all with the purpose of avoiding illness or injury before it occurs. Physicians can use their position of influence, clinical skills and medical expertise to promote healthy lifestyles. Emergency medicine physicians and residents at Indiana University School of Medicine have developed a mentoring program in conjunction with an after school program from Indianapolis Public Schools. As part of this program a mentoring notebook was created for both mentor and student.

21H.560 Smashing the Iron Rice Bowl: Chinese East Asia (MIT) 21H.560 Smashing the Iron Rice Bowl: Chinese East Asia (MIT)

Description

This subject examines the experiences of ordinary Chinese people as they lived through the tumultuous changes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We look at personal narratives, primary sources, films alongside a textbook to think about how individual and family lives connect with the broader processes of change in modern China. In the readings and discussions, you should focus on how major political events have an impact on the characters' daily lives, and how the decisions they make cause large-scale social transformation.

21G.040 A Passage to India: Introduction to Modern Indian Culture and Society (MIT) 21G.040 A Passage to India: Introduction to Modern Indian Culture and Society (MIT)

Description

This course introduces students to Indian Culture through films, short-stories, novels, essays, and newspaper articles. The course examines some major social and political controversies of contemporary India through discussions centered on India's history, politics and religion. The focus is on issues such as ethnic tension and terrorism, poverty and inequality, caste conflict, the "missing women," and the effects of globalization on popular and folk cultures. Particular emphasis is on the IT revolution, outsourcing, the "new global India," and the enormous regional and sub-cultural differences.

Firearm Injury Prevention Firearm Injury Prevention

Description

Content Type:  Course Gun ownership is common and firearms are involved in the injury and death of a large number of children each year from both intentional and unintentional causes nationally. Physician counseling on firearm safety is an effective injury prevention method. This series of video modules was built to teach pediatric resident physicians about firearm injury prevention and safety counseling. The skills and tools provided can be used by physicians across a variety of disciplines.   In the first module, Dr. Patrick Carter, an Emergency Medicine physician, provides an overview of firearm injury epidemiology in the United States. Safe storage of guns can decrease risks to children.

2.017J Design of Systems Operating in Random Environments (MIT) 2.017J Design of Systems Operating in Random Environments (MIT)

Description

This class covers the principles for optimal performance and survival of extreme events in a random environment; linear time invariant systems and Fourier transform; random processes, autocorrelation function, and power spectra. We will study statistics of the response of systems and perform optimization using a statistics-based index. The class will also involve sea wave modeling, sea spectra, elements of seakeeping, wind modeling, and wind spectra. Finally, it also covers extreme events and probability of failure; examples include extreme waves and 100-year events. Students undertake a term project, focusing on electronics and instrumentation, and design for the ocean environment.

21G.040 A Passage to India: Introduction to Modern Indian Culture and Society (MIT) 21G.040 A Passage to India: Introduction to Modern Indian Culture and Society (MIT)

Description

This course is an introduction to modern Indian culture and society through films, documentaries, short stories, novels, poems, and journalistic writing. The principal focus is on the study of major cultural developments and social debates in the last sixty five years of history through the reading of literature and viewing of film clips. The focus will be on the transformations of gender and class issues, representation of nationhood, the idea of regional identities and the place of the city in individual and communal lives. The cultural and historical background will be provided in class lectures. The idea is to explore the "other Indias" that lurk behind our constructed notion of a homogeneous national culture.

Public diplomacy games: a comparative study of American and Japanese responses to the interplay of nationalism, ideology and Chinese soft power strategies around the 2008 Beijing Olympics

Description

The Olympic Games are global communication events that offer host-nations the unique opportunity to promote a soft power agenda by allowing them to construct global messages about their cultural identities and work towards public diplomacy goals that may be more difficult to achieve under normal circumstances. At the same time, however, the Olympics accentuate nationalist and patriotic sentiment, especially in host-nations. Nationalist conviction must be conceptually differentiated from support for the national government. Indeed, we suggest that one of the tasks of governments of Olympic host cities is to manage strong nationalist emotions in order that they support the public diplomacy efforts associated with the Olympic Games. In this paper, American and Japanese media responses to the

SP.725 D-Lab: Medical Technologies for the Developing World (MIT) SP.725 D-Lab: Medical Technologies for the Developing World (MIT)

Description

D-Lab Health provides a multidisciplinary approach to global health technology design via guest lectures and a major project based on fieldwork. We will explore the current state of global health challenges and learn how to design medical technologies that address those problems. Students may travel to Nicaragua during spring break to work with health professionals, using medical technology design kits to gain field experience for their device challenge. As a final class deliverable, you will create a product design solution to address challenges observed in the field. The resulting designs are prototyped in the summer for continued evaluation and testing.

21H.560 Smashing the Iron Rice Bowl: Chinese East Asia (MIT)

Description

This subject examines the experiences of ordinary Chinese people as they lived through the tumultuous changes of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. We look at personal narratives, primary sources, films alongside a textbook to think about how individual and family lives connect with the broader processes of change in modern China. In the readings and discussions, you should focus on how major political events have an impact on the characters' daily lives, and how the decisions they make cause large-scale social transformation.

"Amoral universalism": mediating and staging global and local in the 1998 Nagano Olympic Winter Games

Description

This paper is a case study that critically analyzes the 1998 Nagano Winter Olympic Games. The Olympics are a gigantic global event, largely as a result of significant global media attention, particularly through television and corporate sponsors. However, these entities simultaneously need a specific locale in which to operate. Analytically, the paper focuses on interactions between the global media actors and the host city and its people. It argues that the commercialized nature of the Olympic Games controls not only the program, but also numerous aspects of the local host city to maximize benefit for the media. This paper reviews how historically and structurally the media were able to obtain such extensive control. Then, it argues how the media actually control the locale through the in

Weapons of mass destruction Weapons of mass destruction

Description

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught Autumn Semester 2010. With the possible exception of climate change, weapons of mass destruction are probably the only thing on the planet that could conceivably mean curtains for all of us. Yet Britain has relied on its nuclear arsenal for decades, and other states seem anxious to acquire one. Why do some countries have these things? What, if anything, should we do about them? How should we feel about their spread? These are some of the questions we will examine in this module. The goal is to familiarise you with the policy issues and the theoretical debates underlying them.
