Various OpenCourseWare initiatives at institutions like Kyoto University and the University of Notre Dame have been met with many a "huzzah" from around the globe. MIT's own OpenCourseWare initiative is quite well known from Peoria to Pretoria, and this particular course is a nice addition to their roster of existing materials. This course was developed and taught by Professor Cynthia Taft, and it addresses the "full range of writings by physicians and other health practitioners." Their number includes Richard Selzer, William Carlos Williams, and Danielle Ofri. Visitors can look over the course syllabus, check out the reading list, and look at the assignments. Persons interested in the work and art of writing about medicine and public health will derive a great deal of enjoyment from these materials.
