12:30 – 14:00 (EST)

Goals and Objectives:

  • Impart the history of Hitler’s Germany in which physicians, medical societies and the scientific community were complicit in planning and executing genocidal programs. Instead of serving as healers, doctors acted as murderers.
  • Provide current students with a “moral compass for navigating the future of medical practice and inherent ethical challenges, such as prejudice, assisted reproduction, resource allocation, obtaining valid informed consent, end of life care, and challenges of genomics and technology expansion.”
  • “By including the Holocaust in the curriculum of health professionals, medicine could do much to vanquish the evil that is antisemitism.” (R.H.)
