*This course is self-paced and is not representative of our graduate program course work. Our online graduate courses provide deeper learning materials, moderated discussion boards, interaction with faculty, feedback and grading on assignments, and require much more academic rigor than the Creating for the Health of It module.

**If you plan to use this course as a prerequisite for the Arts in Medicine graduate programs, please consult the graduate progams advisor: or call 352-273-1488.
