Online event: Medical Ethics Evening

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 two recent IDEA intercalating alumni to present short talks on their dissertation research in Medical Ethics.

Amaal Maqsood-Shah will be discussing whether information about a patient’s genetic condition should be strictly confidential and Matthew Murray will be discussing how doctors should act in order to best care for dying patients.

The presentations will be followed by small and large group discussions about related ethical questions. There will also be time at the end for a Q&A about our courses.


6.00pm Introduction by Dr Sarah Carter-Walshaw – Programme Director Biomedical and Health Care Ethics
6.05pm Presentations
6.30pm Group Discussions
7.00pm Conclusions
7.30pm Informal Q&A
