Medical Ethics Conference Videos

As he neared the end of his life, it was Dr. Philip J. Clarke's fervent wish that Notre Dame would found a medical ethics conference for practicing physicians, Notre Dame undergraduates, and distinguished scholars in medical ethics could gather to discuss the crucial issues in contemporary medicine. He believed the modern medicine was both a great blessing and fraught with peril. Dr. Clarke contributed financial support for such a conference on both his family's and his own behalf, and it is in his honor that we have named the keynote speech of the annual medical ethics conference. Watch videos from past conferences here.
