Medical Ethics Conference

March 20- 22, 2015

The Medical Ethics Conference at the University of Notre Dame celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2015.  The first conference was organized by Dr. Philip Clarke and a number of other physician alumni of Notre Dame in March of 1985. This conference has been a fixture on the calendar of events at Notre Dame since that time, and it has attracted many of the leading contemporary scholars in bioethics to its annual sessions.

This conference has been distinctive in a number of ways. The program is built around small group discussions complemented by open-mic plenary sessions, all focused on case studies contributed by practicing physicians. The conference is open to both alumni and non-alumni, and we welcome persons from all religious traditions and viewpoints.

Although most of the participants in our conferences are physicians, we also welcome every year nurses, chaplains, health care administrators, other medical professionals, and anyone interested in lively discussions of cutting-edge ethical issues in contemporary medicine.
