Summer Seminar in Healthcare Ethics
Monday, July 30 - Friday, August 3, 2018
This annual one-week Seminar is an intensive, interactive introduction to the four-box method of
analysis of ethical problems in clinical ethics, developed by Jonsen, Siegler, and Winslade in
their book CLINICAL ETHICS. The Seminar also introduces the Core Competencies in Health Care Ethics
Consultation. Lectures are designed to familiarize participants with basic definitions and
arguments in each of the major topics of clinical ethics. in addition, the Seminar aims to provide
participants with skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical
decisions in clinical situations and
to assist others in doing so. Hence, careful attention is paid to methods of case analysis and to
discussion of cases. The Seminar has always attracted a mix of participants that resembles the
actual participants in clinical care, making it possible to share different, but complementary
views.
Surgical Ethics Conference
Friday, August 3, 2018
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.
