Annual medical ethics conference celebrates 20 years of disputes
Date:11/10/2008

The 20th annual conference of The MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago will honor the Center's founder and director, Mark Siegler, MD, and examine his work and influence on the field. The conference will be held at the University of Chicago Law School, 1111 E. 60th Street, on Fri., Nov 14 from 1 to 5 pm, and Sat., Nov. 15, from 7:30 am to 5:15 pm.

The conference will be a "festschrift"--a European tradition in which a scholar's colleagues and trainees honor him with a discussion of his work.

The conference is organized around 16 of Sielger's elegant and opinionated writings on the doctor-patient relationship, the development of the field of clinical medical ethics, improved end-of-life care for patients, and new ethical approaches to innovations in surgical can cancer care.

The Lindy Bergman Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine at the University, Siegler has written and spoken extensively on decision-making in complex medical situations, such as intensive care, end-of-life decision making and living-donor organ transplantation. These stressful situations serve as "clinical probes," he said. "They can help us understand the process by which patients and doctors reach everyday decisions."

Siegler founded The MacLean Center in 1984. It quickly became the country's leading center for teaching clinicians about patient-centered medical ethics. Since 1984, nearly 250 fellowsmost of them physicians, but also nurses, legal scholars, theologians, and philosophershave trained at the Center in a one- or two-year fellowship program.

Former MacLean fellows, many of who will speak at the conference, have published more than 60 books in the field. More than 30 have directed ethics programs in hospitals and research centers in the United States, Canada and Europe. More than 25 are now full professors at leading academic institutions and about a dozen hold endowed university professorships.'/>"/>
