    For fans and and those not so keen, there is a Behavioral Medicine course on distance learning site EdX. It was written by Swedish medical School the Karolinska Institutet

    Behavioral Medicine: A key to better health

    "Behavioral medicine is the science of changing our behavior, so we as individuals can stay healthy and happy as long as we can"

    The course is archived with the study materials archived.

    my experience with the last MOOC psychology course that i 'took'.

    Most (non-psych) courses require weeks-months to complete.

    I enrolled in a psych course skipped all lessons and went straight to the final exam (I have no formal psych education or background)

    Took me 10 minutes to complete the exam with ~90% of question right. (I would just guess them or deduct them from the questions or sometimes I knew the answer)

    Some of the 'heuristics' that i used to guess the questions when I didn't knew the anwer:

    I would try to select the most misanthropic answer given that made a person(patient) look most helpless, insecure and flawed.

    Conclusion:

    Psychology is a joke and a waste of time.

    Are you recommending it because you've taken the course?
    If so, what aspect of the course interested you or helped you the most?
