The Theology, Medicine, and Culture (TMC) Initiative at Duke Divinity School and the Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine at Duke University and School of Medicine are hosting the first session of their Spring 2019 Theology, Medicine, and Culture seminar series.

This seminar, "'Just Do Your Job': Technology, Bureaucracy, and the Eclipse of Conscience in Contemporary Medicine,” will be given by Farr Curlin, M.D., the Josiah C. Trent Professor of Medical Humanities at Duke. A practicing palliative medicine physician, he works in both the School of Medicine’s Trent Center for Bioethics, Humanities & History of Medicine and as the co-director of TMC at the Divinity School. 

These semi-monthly seminars are a regular gathering of faculty, fellows, students, and others interested in the intersection of theology, medicine, and culture. Formats include clinical case discussions, invited speakers, colloquia for student research, and discussion of seminal books and articles.
