Informative and yet a disaster for those like myself who sought a Certificate of Accomplishment. PROS (what's good): I gained a framework to better understand the US healthcare system, seeing the main players as patients, payers, providers, and public health. I grappled with what's important to me and what is not in doing the "CHAT" exercise in allocating (rationing) scarce healthcare resources. For these, five of five stars. CONS (the disaster): Grading took months, not weeks, and I (and many others) received failing grades (exactly 66.7%) even though we dutifully did all of the ungraded assignments. If you want a Statement of Accomplishment, don't get your hopes up! It would be crazy to pay money to take this class on Signature Track. For this disaster, zero of five stars. Overall grade: 2.5 stars.
