An in-depth ethical analysis and evaluation of present and emerging biomedical technologies in the 21st century. While not ignoring other ethical schools of thought, the focus of this course will be on the Hippocratic and Judeo-Christian traditions with their emphasis on the inherent dignity and worth of humanity as a whole, as well as the individual patient.  This ethical foundation will serve as the primary framework for discussing medical decision making and practice.
