KLICE Summer School - Medical Ethics for the 21st century
29 August 2012 - 30 August 2012
For healthcare workers such as doctors, nurses and midwives in partnership with the Christian Medical Fellowship.
This two day KLICE summer school will be held in the peaceful surroundings of Tyndale House, Cambridge. It is intended primarily for Christian doctors and others engaged in healthcare who wish to engage more effectively in the challenging climate of contemporary medical ethics. The course will focus first on developing a more profound understanding of the worldviews and thinking which underpin secular bioethics, and second on learning from the biblical, theological and ethical insights of contemporary Christian scholars. There will also be a strong emphasis on personal discipleship to Christ.
The course leader and academic coordinator will be Professor John Wyatt, recently retired Professor of Ethics and Perinatology, University College London and author of Matters of Life and Death: Human dilemmas in the light of the Christian Faith. Other speakers and discussion leaders will include:
• Dr Jonathan Chaplin – Director of KLICE, author of Talking God: The Legitimacy of Religious Public Reasoning.
• Dr Joshua Hordern – Associate Director of KLICE, Research Fellow and Affiliated Lecturer in Medical and Sexual Ethics, University of Cambridge
The number of participants will be kept small in order to ensure the maximum level of participation and interaction for those who attend. The official programme will start at 9am Wednesday morning and finish on Thursday afternoon. For those who would like to arrive on Tuesday evening, accommodation and an informal meal (at own expense) will be arranged.
The fee for the summer school will be 170 pounds per person. This includes accommodation for 1 night with breakfast, the course itself including reading material, lunches, tea, coffee and light refreshments and a 2-course supper on Wednesday as we dine out as a group in order to continue our discussions (drinks not included). Accommodation will be in Wolfson College, a 2-minute walk from Tyndale House. A second night’s accommodation on Tuesday evening can be provided for an additional 45 pounds. If you wish to arrange your own accommodation and breakfast the fee will be reduced to 125 pounds.
