ETH 3900H (Honors) Bioethics in the Contemporary World

(formerly ETH 318H)

This course explores medical ethics from two perspectives: the critical analysis of recent bioethics literature and the impact for future health care professionals. Both theory and application will be considered, especially as they relate to informed consent, human personhood, allocation of resources, technological advancement, research methods, professional duties, interpersonal relations and compassion in the workplace. (Sponsored by the Department of Philosophy or by the Department of Theology and Religious Studies.)
