TH 598 Law, Medicine, and Ethics (Fall/Spring: 3)
Cross Listed with
This course examines legal and ethical issues in medicine. It is designed
so that students take an ethical position on difficult or emerging issues
in medicine, such as appropriate care of seriously ill newborns, new forms
of reproduction, and proposals for health care reform. The student is expected
to provide a principled rationale for the position. The goal is to have
the students think, be prepared to recognize inadequacies or difficulties
in their position, modify it if necessary, and ultimately arrive at a thought-through
and principled position. A Socratic method is used to achieve that goal.
