Medical Ethics Summer Seminar, June 24-28, 2019

The Arete Initiative at Duke University will be hosting a Medical Ethics Seminar led by Christopher Tollefsen, PhD, University of South Carolina and Farr Curlin, MD, Duke University. This seminar invites students to examine the central ethical questions that arise in the everyday practice of medicine and to interpret those questions through a moral framework drawing from both natural law and medicine’s traditional orientation toward the patient’s health. 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 contributes to human flourishing.
