A Seminar for Medical Students: “Medical Ethics: A Natural Law Perspective”

images (11)Want some additional medical ethics education this summer? We want to encourage you to attend this special seminar:

Medical Ethics: 
A Natural Law Perspective 
June 16-22, 2013.

 

 

 

This seminar will examine the most important ethical questions that arise in the everyday practice of medicine. The framework of its analysis will be the theory of natural law that developed from the synthesis of ancient Greek thought (including the Hippocratic corpus) with Judaism and then Christianity. This framework will be contrasted with principlism and consequentialism as participants consider what sort of practice medicine is, whether it has a rational end or goal, and how medicine and the goods that medicine seeks fit within the broader scope of human goods.
