From 2012 until recently, I was an adjunct lecturer at Laboure College in Milton, Massachusetts. At that time, I taught a course called, “Fundamentals of US Healthcare Delivery” in person, in a hybrid setting, and entirely online.
I developed PowerPoint slides and recorded YouTube lectures for Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 11, because I thought those were the most important chapters to cover for the class. I combined 5 & 11 together, and split 1 and 8 into two halves because both were a lot of material.
While I admit the videos are a little dated, I keep getting comments and traffic, and I often get requests to post the slides. That’s the main goal of this blog post – to make it so learners have somewhere to download the slides.
