Date Event Description
July 31 - August 5, 2017 MJ1801 Summer Seminar in Healthcare Ethics
Register   Details

This annual one-week Seminar is an intensive, interactive introduction to the four-box method of analysis of ethical problems in clinical ethics, developed by Jonsen, Siegler, and Winslade in their book CLINICAL ETHICS. The Seminar also introduces the Core Competencies in Healthcare Ethics Consultation. Lectures are designed to familiarize participants with basic definitions and arguments in each of the major topics of clinical ethics. In addition, the Seminar aims to provide participants with skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations and to assist others in doing so. Hence, careful attention is paid to methods of case analysis and to discussion of cases. The Seminar has always attracted a mix of participants that resembles the actual participants in clinical care, making it possible to share different, but complementary views.

This one-day conference employs the methods of ethical analysis taught in the Summer Seminar to analyze topics of special interest to surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgical nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and hospital administrators. Lectures tailored to surgical specialties define relevant ethical principles and concepts. Multi-disciplinary panels and small group discussions allow participants to better understand the legitimate ethical debates that bear upon each topic. In addition, the conference introduces participants to the skills and information sufficient to enable them to make competent ethical decisions in clinical situations.

August 25 - August 26, 2017 MJ1803 Men's Health Update
Register   Details

With the aging of the American population and increases in access to affordable health care, primary care providers are increasingly caring for urologic disease.  Men are disproportionately afflicted by urologic disease, and “Men’s Health” is a growing medical arena where specialized knowledge is required.  The diagnosis and management of many urologic diseases have been greatly influenced by recent pharmacological, surgical and technological advances.  One of the greatest challenges care providers face is staying abreast with the many dynamic changes in this field.  An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as Prostate, Bladder, and Testicular Cancer, Hypogonadism and Testosterone Replacement, Sexual Dysfunction, Voiding Dysfunction, Kidney Stones and Genital Pain Syndromes. During the plenary sessions, the registrants will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions.  In addition, an emphasis on case presentations with faculty participation will enhance the practical value of the course.
