Bioethics Student Interest Group

The DGSOM Bio-Ethics group is a student-led interest group committed to providing students with a unique forum to learn about and discuss ethical issues as they pertain to human health, biomedical research, and clinical healthcare practices. Our goals are to stimulate discussion of potential ethical issues that students may encounter in their careers, and to equip students with several basic strategies to think through ethical dilemmas within a structured, rational framework. As a secondary objective, we aim to advocate for greater incorporation of medical ethics into the DGSOM curriculum. These objectives will be accomplished through student-led meetings, inviting guest speakers to discuss actual cases, and working with the DGSOM administration on curriculum reform projects. A student-led medical ethics panel will provide additional opportunities for students to discuss actual cases brought forth by fellow students, residents, or faculty, and to reinforce the knowledge gained from their interest in bioethics.
