Surgical Ethics Conference

August 4, 2022 (All day) to August 5, 2022 (All day)

Abstract: In partnership with the UW Department of Surgery, this virtual conference will employ the methods of ethical analysis taught in the UW Summer Seminar to analyze topics of special interest to surgeons, surgical residents & fellows, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and hospital administrators.  The conference additionally introduces participants to skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations.

The conference format will incorporate asynchronous content tailored to surgical specialties defining ethical principles and concepts, with a live online program, including multi-disciplinary small group discussions, designed to allow participants to better understand the ethical debates that bear upon each topic. 

Sponsored by the Department of Bioethics & Humanities and the Department of Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine
