Jewish Medical Ethics & Israel Experience Program

Description:

The New England Institute of Jewish Studies, in coordination with the Schlesinger Institute and Shaare Tzedek Medical Center, Jerusalem, is sponsoring a four week summer program, combining the study of medical ethics, Jewish thought and tours of Israel. The purpose of the program is to enable Jewish medical students to explore Jewish approaches to challenging medical issues confronting health care professionals. Compelling seminars on Jewish thought address contemporary issues facing the Jewish people. The program features many tours and hikes in Israel.

The faculty includes world renowned medical ethicists and scholars of contemporary Jewish law and philosophy. The medical ethics curriculum incorporates the case-study method and hospital rounds and has qualified for elective credit. Students from over fifty medical schools have participated in the Jewish Medical Ethics Summer Program over the past ten years.
