    Summer Seminar in Health Care Ethics

    This annual one-week seminar in Seattle is an intensive, interactive introduction to the four-box method of ethical analysis developed by Jonsen, Siegler and Winslade in Clinical Ethics and taught by faculty in the Department of Bioethics and Humanities at the University of Washington. The Core Competencies in Health Care Ethics are explained and practiced throughout the course. The course includes interactive case-based discussions, mock ethics committee work and lectures designed to familiarize participants with basic definitions and arguments in each of the major topics of clinical ethics. Our featured speaker this year is John Moskop, PhD. For over 25 years, the seminar has attracted a mix of physicians, nurses, lawyers, chaplains, social workers and other health care professionals. Please join us in beautiful Seattle this summer!
