Very good course to gain a better understanding of the factors at play in our healthcare system. Good exposition of the facts and well-explained tests. Highly recommended.

No grades. Minimal communications from course staff. Weeks go by. No response to increasingly agitated and numerous messages on the boards asking when grades will be issued. Months go by. No grades. A staff member finally came on and said hand grading the assignments took a long time. Um... yeah. With thousands of students hand grading isn't really an option. I can't figure out what Coursera was thinking to allow that, or what the staff was thinking to propose it. We finally got our certificates the third week of February, and many people are complaining that they were given an incorrect grade. The class was over in November. As far as content, the info presented was based on pretty limited assumptions, although what was presented within those constraints was very well done. There were some really great discussions on the boards about all subjects, both within and without the given constraints.
