Program Description: 

Responding to an increase in professionalism conduct issues at medical schools, as well as the growing gap between what doctors are trained to do and the realities of modern medical practice, the Royal College of Physicians has produced the Advancing Medical Professionalism Report. The seven roles elaborated (including doctor as healer, as advocate, as manager and leader, among others) are thought fundamental to good medical practice (in the UK). But a question remains: does such a document, or the programs of education that orient students to its constellation of roles, help to delimit or dilute professional identity and the corresponding responsibilities? Whether delimiting or diluting, such a document might make one ask, what makes a good doctor and how do you make one?

Bioethics and Medical Humanities Grand Rounds provides a forum for teaching participants to resolve cases based on the best ethical practices. Bioethics and Medical Humanities Grand Rounds also provides information on any legislative changes that occur so that clinicians are ready to implement them. The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities is the only clinical ethics center in Wisconsin. The faculty are leaders in clinical ethics and set the agenda for clinical ethics practice in Southeastern Wisconsin.
