PSC 341 - PII Healthcare Politics: U.S. Policy in Comparative Perspective


(Perspectives II) Why is the United States the only advanced democratic nation which does not guarantee all citizens access to health care? Why do Americans spend more on health care than any other nation, yet have poorer health outcomes than citizens of other comparable countries? This course examines the structure of American health care system and compares it with those of other advanced capitalist democracies. Focusing on historical and political explanations of American exceptionalism, we ask whether recent developments suggest a possibility of convergence among the major industrialized countries. Course Codes: BR. Prereq: PEQ in Social Sciences. International Studies course. Offered alternate fall semesters.
