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.

Watch Dr. Calhoun Today Live

2013-02-28_12-06-16_10Today, Friday, March 1st, at 1PM EST  12PM CST join us for the very first live, online broadcast of the 2013 Med Students for Life Spring Tour. The talk by Dr. Calhoun will be streamed from the University Of Texas-Houston School of Medicine on the topic of Perinatal Hospice.

Dr. Calhoun will speak about perinatal hospice and what you can do as medical students to carry on this life-affirming work in your future practice. Too often, parents are counseled to seek abortion when faced with a poor prenatal diagnosis, but there is a compassionate, life-affirming alternative. Mothers and fathers want to take care of their sick children, and medical professionals, through the perinatal hospice model, can help them do just that. Perinatal hospice is an evidenced-based multi-disciplinary approach by medical teams to care for families through the bereavement process over their sick child, ultimately improving the family’s care and long-term health.
