Lectures on Jewish Medical Ethics Attended by Non-jewish Physicians

A series of lectures on Jewish medical ethics, organized by a Jewish chaplain for Jewish personnel in the Fort Gordon Medical Corps is being attended by Christian chaplains as well as non-Jewish doctors and dentists at their own request.

The widespread interest in the series was reported by Chaplain Dov P. Elkins, the chaplain who organized the seminar, to the Jewish Welfare Board Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy. He reported also that the Department of Medicine and Religion of the American Medical Association is sending a staff member to Fort Gordon to evaluate the seminar.
