SSOM Medical Student Ethics Grand Rounds

Sponsored by the Neiswanger Institute For Bioethics
As you become responsible for some patient care or move closer to that responsibility, participation in discussions regarding the ethical dilemmas arising from patient care is important. At ethics grand rounds, you will see how faculty and guests approach the resolution of difficult ethical issues in patient care, and you will be able to enter a discussion of the case. The objective is that this experience will assist in your practice and help you acquire an ease in addressing ethical and public policy issues.

  • Students need to attend FOUR Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics sponsored grand rounds by the end of their fourth year. We recommend you attend them by the end of your second year. Attending ethics grand rounds in your third and fourth year will be difficult. Approximately twelve Bioethics sponsored grand rounds are scheduled each year.
  • Attendance is recorded by SIGN-IN SHEET for each Bioethics Grand Round.
