Medical Ethics Evening
- Date: Tuesday 23 November 2021, 18:00 – 20:00
- Location: Off-campus
- Cost: FREE
Join us for our bi-annual Medical Ethics evening where we will be discussing current medical issues and their ethical implications.
This year, we are welcoming medical intercalation MA alumni Panashe Chinya and Alina Wahab to discuss the ethical issues they raised in their MA dissertations.
Panashe's discussion will be asking: ‘Would it be ethically justifiable to mandate moral enhancement to solve the issue of racism and racially-motivated implicit biases in medicine?’.
Alina will be discussing: ‘Excess Blame as an Epistemic Injustice Towards Patients with Borderline Personality Disorder’.
The presentations will be followed by small and large group discussions about related ethical questions. There will also be time at the end for Q&A about our courses, including our intercalated BA and MA in Biomedical and Health Care Ethics.
This is a free event, to be held on Teams, specifically targeted at current students (including those interested in intercalating) and recent graduates, especially those interested in hearing more about the IDEA Centre and the courses we offer. The Teams link will be sent out on the day of the event to everyone who has signed up.
