This course will introduce the student to the field of bioethics and the principles that support modern medicine: autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice.
Dr. Williams will also introduce his theory of Complementary Ethics for Modern Healthcare which makes care a primary principle. The course will focus on the rationing of care, triaging, and the various models for utilizing scarce healthcare resources. Allocating vaccines in a pandemic will be a topic of conversation.
The course text will be Dr. Williams’ booklet A Complementary Bio Ethic: A New Moral Philosophy for Health Care available here.
