SSCI 5242 - Bioethics


Examines some of the major moral issues confronting the nation’s health care system. The class will search for solutions to such problems as financing health care for those unable to do so on their own, determining the extent of a patient’s right to both refuse and demand certain types of medical treatment, and allocating scarce medical resources such as life-saving vital organs. The springboard for examining these issues will be the doctor or patient relationship framed by the moral principles of respect for persons and beneficence. Restriction: Restricted to Graduate and Graduate Non-Degree majors. Cross-listed with PHIL 4242, PHIL 5242, HUMN 5242. Max Hours: 3 Credits. Semester Hours: 3 to 3
