The 4-day intensive Bioethics Mediation course, offered in conjunction with the Masters in Bioethics Program at Yeshiva Medical School, will give students the opportunity to learn about the use of mediation to resolve conflict about medical care and about the ethical principles that help guide hard decisions in the health care setting. Mediation is a vital tool for managing conflicts between and among health care staff and families. The mediation process helps participants articulate their values and acknowledge other perspectives. This highly interactive course, during which students will participate in simulated bioethics mediations as both mediators and parties, offers role plays, brief lectures, exercises and extensive individual feedback. Class will take place from 9-5 each day. Ten - 12 places are open to Columbia Law students who receive one point of creditSome familiarity with the health care system or with bioethics will be helpful. Please email Prof. Liebman at [email protected] if you have questions about the course.
