Summary

Francis Delmonico, MD, FACS, Professor of Surgery at Harvard University, gives an international perspective on the ethics of organ donation and transplantation.

Organ transplantation raises almost every important medical ethical issue, including: standards for determining death, informed consent, the fair allocation of scarce resources, research on human subjects, global health concerns, and more. The MacLean Center’s Seminar Series has examined Ethical Issues in Organ Transplantation.

This year’s interdisciplinary seminar series was organized by Mark Siegler, MD, Director of the MacLean Center. The seminars are cosponsored by the Transplant Center at the University of Chicago Medicine.
