Medical Student Electives

JOWMA is excited to announce a new
Jewish Medical Ethics rotation to our members!

The advances in modern medicine have spawned a wide variety of ethical dilemmas in such areas as genetics, reproductive technology, the determination of death, organ, transplantation, euthanasia, and assisted suicide. While the secular ethical approach to these issues is often well publicized and adequately represented at many medical schools, the religious viewpoint, and in particular, that of Orthodox Judaism, is rarely given a voice. This half-module (one month) guided reading elective allows the student to choose a topic of their interest and will provide an overview of the Orthodox Jewish approach to medical issues by analyzing texts from the Bible, Talmud, and Rabbinic commentaries throughout the ages.

Prerequisites: As many of the texts are in the Hebrew language, a rudimentary knowledge of Hebrew would be helpful, although not essential.
