Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race

March 1, 2018

April 11, 2018 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Denver, Colorado

This pre-conference session will offer participants the unique opportunity to view the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum special exhibit, Deadly Medicine: Creating the Master Race (on loan to the University of Colorado Center for Bioethics and Humanities) and participate in Medical Grand Rounds with Dr. Patricia Heberer-Rice, Senior Historian at the USHMM, specializing in medical crimes of the Holocaust, and Dr. Matthew Wynia, Director of the CU Center for Bioethics and Humanities.

After Grand Rounds, participants will walk across the beautiful CU Anschutz Medical Campus to see the Deadly Medicine exhibit. We will then break into two groups, one of which will explore several aspects of our campus that were specifically designed to facilitate interprofessional education and training, including the Center for Advancing Professional Excellence (CAPE). This group will observe an interprofessional simulation exercise at the CAPE, and join in a discussion and exploration of novel methods and tools for interprofessional education, training and practice being used and tested at CU such as our team based learning (TBL) foundational classroom course, our Open Campus program (featuring One Book One Campus) and more. The other group will attend a panel discussion at the theater-in-the-round in the Fulginiti Pavilion for Bioethics and Humanities, addressing legacies and lessons of the Holocaust for health professionals and society today.

Transportation and lunch will be provided to attendees who register by April 1, 2018.
