Overview
All ethics didactic sessions will be held from 11.00am-noon on 6 Spruce. Each session will have two parts: (1) two residents should be prepared to present the facts and ethical dimensions of a case (2) didactic content will cover a specific ethical or philosophical issue. Residents should complete the assigned readings to ensure thoughtful and critical discussion. Often there will appear news items worthy of discussion. If so, these will be sent to residents via the PAH Inpatient Chief Resident in advance of meetings.
