The Benjamin Rabinowitz Symposium in Medical Ethics is an annual, interdisciplinary event that brings together researchers, faculty, students, health care workers and members of the public to discuss and critically assess recent research, theories, policies and practices relevant to the ethics of health, health care and medicine. The interdisciplinary nature of the symposium motivates collaboration across Philosophy, Bioethics, Public and Population Health, Medicine, Nursing, Social Work, Political Science, Sociology, Medical Anthropology and the Health Humanities, among other disciplines. It also brings researchers and theorists in conversation with those who practice and make policy in medicine, nursing and public health. Topics range from those related to issues in clinical ethics to those in population health ethics.
The Symposium is made possible by generous funding from the Benjamin Rabinowitz Endowment in Medical Ethics. For more information on the Symposium, please contact Carina Fourie, the Benjamin Rabinowitz Chair in Medical Ethics at the Department of Philosophy: firstname.lastname@example.org.
