HCE 570 Clinical Bioethics and Religious Traditions (3 credits)
This course will focus on the clinical and religious aspects of bioethics in a hospital setting. Every week the students will attend two sets of clinical rounds in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU). During these rounds certain ethical issues will emerge from patient care, and the students will be responsible for researching these issues during the week. On the other class day, the students will attend class at Saint Joseph’s, and seminar discussions of various ethical issues involved in clinical medicine from different religious traditions, e.g., Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, Islamic, etc., will be held.
