“Updates in Clinical Ethics at Michigan Medicine”

Professionalization of the Clinical Ethics Consultation Service several years ago has led to an expansion in ethics-related activities across the institution. This seminar will include updates on the success of the Pre-Doctoral Clinical Ethics Fellowship, the increase in Preventive Ethics Services and Ethics Consultation, and collaborations in both education and research at both Mott and University Hospital.
