Mixing classroom lecture/discussion/role-playing with hands-on field work at a local hospital, this course will complete a student’s preparation to assist others in making medical decisions that are biblically, medically, and pastorally sound.  In-class attention will be given to the ethical principles crucial to current in-hospital challenges, the legal and cultural climate of hospital ethics, and the practical obstacles to making decisions when urgency, shock, grief, and uncertainty are all clouding the picture.  Field work will be mentored by both the course instructor and hospital professionals with expertise in medical care, ethics consultation, and spiritual care. Prerequisite(s): PHI 171 , BIO 219 , PSY 303 . 3 hour(s).
