Keywords:rhetoric of health and medicine, technical and professional communication, Course Design, pedagogy, Social Justice
This article details how we developed a hybrid rhetoric of health and medicine and technical communication writing course in response to a call for a health sciences writing course. We anticipate that other institutions may be experiencing similar demand for these courses and thus introduce our process and course design as models for meeting this growing curricular need.
