Health Care Education as Missions: “Professional, Moral and Ethical Dilemmas in International Health Care Education”

hosted by: Jim Smith and Phil Fischer

November 9 2017 1:00 PM - 3:45 PM
Main Building WC 231

Meeting Overview

This pre-conference will feature four or five discussion groups on professional, moral or ethical dilemmas one may face when working in an educational setting internationally, either on short term mission teams or serving long term. Attendees can chose a topic and group they would like to join. Each group will take the scenario given them and discuss how we can approach the dilemma as Christians working in a different culture with different cultural norms. Things to discuss will be who are the stakeholders, the medical facts (for clinical cases), values, norms and limitations for the assigned scenario. After a one hour session each group will then present their conclusions and reasons to the entire group for discussion.
