Medical treatment of detainees is subject of bioethics grand rounds

A speaker from Loma Linda University Medical Center will address the topic of “Medical Treatment of Detainees—A Medical Officer’s Perspective” at the next Bioethics Grand Rounds scheduled to be held Thursday, February 2, 2006.

The grand rounds will be held from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. in Wong Kerlee International Conference Center.

The speaker for the February grand rounds is Michael Walter, MD, associate professor of medicine, gastroenterology, Loma Linda University.

The objectives of Dr. Walter’s presentation are to: better understand the strategic significance of the global war on terrorism and some problematic issues that war uniquely brings to the front; review and understand the Geneva Convention; and examine and understand some of the issues that medical personnel face when caring for detainees.

The grand rounds, presented by the Center for Christian Bioethics, is designated by the School of Medicine for continuing medical education activity for one hour in category 1 of the Physician’s Recognition Award of the American Medical Association.

Loma Linda University School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to sponsor continuing education for physicians.
