Bioethics Lecture Series

The Master's program is privileged to offer our students access to current thinkers in bioethics and medical humanities through several prestigious lecture series presented by the School of Medicine.


The division of Medical Humanism and Ethics hosts two of these lecture series. The Gheens Bioethics Lecture series explores topics of current interest in bioethics. Speakers have included Felicia Cohn, Jeffery Spike, and Alison Wichman, as well as many others known for their contributions to the discussion of bioethics. The James L. Stambaugh, Jr. Lecture series explores topics in bioethics and medical humanities. Speakers have included Rita Charon, H. Tristram Engelhardt, Renee Fox, and Peter Singer,  among other notable names. 


Students will also have access to the newly formed Cheng lecture series focusing on medical ethics starting in 2010, hosted by the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Women's Health.


Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and speakers many of the Gheens and Stambaugh lectures are available through streaming video and for download through iTunesU.
