Announcement of the Department of Bioethics and the Holocaust of the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics (Haifa)
Dr. Stacy Gallin and Dr. Tessa Chelouche, MIMEH's Director and Co-Director, are honored to announce the formation of the Department of Bioethics and the Holocaust of the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics (Haifa), effective June 1, 2017. We are excited to expand MIMEH's mission by working together with the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics (Haifa) to build this new Department.
Under the guidance of Professor Amnon Carmi, Head of the UNESCO Chair of Bioethics (Haifa), we have been given the privilege of creating this department to form an international group of interested professionals who will work together to provide various tools for educating undergraduates, graduates and professionals in the field of healthcare regarding the continuing relevance of bioethics and the Holocaust for current issues in society pertaining to medical practice, public policy and human rights.
The Department is expected to achieve these goals through the use of varied research programs, scientific meetings/conferences and publications of educational materials, both online and in other formats, which can be offered at various international institutions in different languages.
An important goal will be to have this subject included as a requirement for graduate medical education and/or continuing medical education. We also intend to foster mutual collaboration by developing global sub-units focused on this topic.
We invite anyone with an interest in collaborating on this project to contact us as we begin developing programming for this new Department. We look forward to working together on this exciting and important endeavor.
