Twyla Gibson on Hippocrates' Oath

For those who may have missed Twyla Gibson's opening lecture in our fall lecture series, What is Life?, there is another opportunity to listen to one of our most insightful and brilliant scholars who connects ancient tradition with contemporary societal and cultural applications.

Twyla Gibson lectures on "Hippocrates' Oath: The Code of Ethics in Bioethics" on Wednesday, October 5, 2005, from 4:10 - 5:00 p.m., in the Great Hall, Joint Centre for Bioethics, 88 College Street.
Hippocrates' Oath has for twenty-four centuries served as the keystone of professional ethics in medicine and the template for revisions to the ethical code of conduct. This study examines the oral traditional origins, context, and history of the Oath, and explores the relevance of its principles to bioethical debates and clinical decision-making today.
No reservations required.
