The global health seminar series sponsored by the Center for Global Health will be open to all FSM students and faculty but participation is required of all medical students who will complete an away-rotation or other global health project in ’12-’13. The seminar is organized to offer a broad range of engaging lectures and discussion on relevant global health topics from experts in the FSM community and the schedule is designed to offer flexibility to medical students who are expected to attend three of the six seminar sessions.
* Seminars 1 and 6 will present the same content. Students should only attend one of the two.
Session 2 – “Global Health Ethics for Medical Trainees” – Wednesday, October 10, noon to 1PM. Location TBD.
This seminar will consider various ethical concerns that medical students and residents may face when training in a different culture and foreign health care system where local perceptions, resources and conceptions of confidentiality, social justice, respect for autonomy and beneficence may be different from the trainees’ previous experience. Participants will be expected to complete a brief on-line ethics module before the session and be prepared to discuss case studies.
