How should beneficial resources be allocated when not all can receive them? First come, first served until the resources run out? A lottery among those who need the resources? Or some other method? Except for organ transplantation recipient selection, U.S. physicians have rarely faced this dilemma. COVID-19 has brought allocation dilemmas to the forefront. What are the ethical issues? How should resources be allocated? What are the potential inequities and how to prevent them?

Please join us for a Grand Rounds panel presentation and Q&A with members of the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities including Arthur R. Derse, MD, JD; Mary E. Homan, DrPH, MA, MSHCE; Fabrice Jotterand, PhD, and Ryan Spellecy, PhD titled:
