Medical Center Hour- April 2, 2014

Wednesday, 2 April 2014
12:30-1:30 pm
Jordan Conference Center Auditorium

University of Virginia School of Medicine

A John F. Anderson Memorial Lecture

R. Edward Freeman PhD
University Professor and Olsson Professor of Business Administration and Academic Director, Business Roundtable Institute for Corporate Ethics, Darden School of Business, UVA

            Despite their reliance on technical knowledge that requires mastery, medicine, law, and business are all deeply human professions. Medicine is more than body repair, law more than legal systems, business more than the physics of money. While professional education necessarily must be at the cutting edge of technical expertise, it must remember too the human nature-including the values, emotions, and richly complicated lives-of professionals and professional organizations.

               In this Medical Center Hour, Professor Ed Freeman from UVA's Darden School of Business demonstrates how the creative arts and humanities can be embedded in professional education to address and actively teach ethical conduct in professional life and leadership of complex professional organizations. What lessons in course design, student engagement, and classroom outcomes might medical educators draw from Professor Freeman's courses, "Business Ethics through Literature" and "Leadership, Ethics, and Theater"?

Co-presented with the Institute for Practical Ethics and Public Life, UVA
