Charles W. Bodemer was founder and chair of the Department of Biomedical History (now the Department of Bioethics & Humanities) from 1967-1985. Trained in anatomy, Dr. Bodemer had a distinguished career as a research scientist before dedicating his energies to his other love: the history of medicine. A prolific writer and dynamic teacher in that field, he used his understanding of medicine’s evolution to provide the UW School of Medicine—students and faculty alike—with a deeper appreciation of the human and social dimension of medical practice. Open to the community, the Bodemer Lecture honors his groundbreaking labors in the development of medical history and ethics at the University of Washington. This annual lecture covers
topics in the areas of medical ethics and medical history.
