At the end of this module, students will be able to:
(i) Describe diseases and healthcare issues from systems perspective
(ii) Construct mental models for real systems and map them as causal loop diagrams (CLDs).
(iii) Translate the CLDs into quantitative models using computational tools like Vensim
(iv) Perform virtual “what-if” experiments on the models to understand the system and find effective solutions for healthcare problems
(v) Collaborate effectively with peers from various disciplines and be able to communicate issues and solutions in systems language
