Jewish Medical Ethics & Israel Experience
The New England Institute of Jewish Studies, in coordination with the Schlesinger Institute and Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, is sponsoring a three week summer program, combining the study of medical ethics, Jewish thought and tours of Israel.
The purpose of the program is to enable Jewish medical students to explore Jewish approaches to challenging medical issues confronting health care professionals. Compelling seminars on Jewish thought address contemporary issues facing the Jewish people. The program also features great tours and hikes in Israel.
The faculty includes world renowned medical ethicists and scholars of contemporary Jewish law and philosophy. The medical ethics curriculum incorporates the case-study method and hospital rounds and has qualified for elective credit.
Students from sixty medical schools have participated in the Jewish Medical Ethics Program over the past sixteen years.
