A traveling exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race, was on display at the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities from March 20-May 22.
Students were invited to author a short case scenario of an ethical issue that might be faced in the health professions. This first competition is inspired by the Deadly Medicine exhibit, and the case should explore an ethical topic related to lessons learned from the legacy of health professionals’ voluntary involvement in the WWII Genocides / Holocaust. First prize is $600 to the winning team. Download flyer or click for details>>
