Next Tuesday, MEDIC will host a discussion with Dr. Gail Van Norman—director of the UWMC pre-anesthesia and surgery clinic. She is also an adjunct professor of the Bioethics and Humanities department, and chair of the standards and finance committee of the anesthesiology department at UW Medicine. We are very excited to have Dr. Van Norman lead us in a discussion of ethics in anesthesiology—a subject she recently published a textbook on. Dr. Van Norman’s clinical interests involve cardiac and transplant anesthesiology, preoperative preparation, and medical ethics in clinical practice, while her main research interest is in advanced directives. This is a unique opportunity to experience the real world of medical ethics, as presented from a professional in the field. Please join us Tuesday, February 15th in the Health Sciences Building T478 from 4:30-6:00pm. This will be a meeting you won’t want to miss!
