HONR 4938 Law, Medicine, and Public Policy (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Law, Medicine and Public Policy examines legal and public policy issues in medicine. It is designed so that students take a position on difficult or emerging issues such as treatment of infants at the margins of viability, physician refusal of requested life-prolonging treatments, experimentation, new forms of reproduction, issues in managed care, etc.

The goal is to have the students recognize inadequacies or difficulties in present practices and to formulate policies for new or developing issues in medicine.

Class discussion is used to achieve this goal.
