Surgical Ethics Conference

This one-day conference employs the methods of ethical analysis taught in the Summer Seminar to analyze topics of special interest to surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and hospital administrators. Lectures tailored to surgical specialties define ethical principles and concepts. Multi-disciplinary panels and small group discussions allow participants to better understand the ethical debates that bear upon each topic. In addition, the conference introduces participants to skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations.
