Christian Anthropology and Bioethics (2016 CMA Medical Student and Resident Boot Camp Talk 1)

 
This talk was given at the 4th Annual Catholic Medical Association Medical Student and Resident Boot Camp held at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Wynnewood PA on June 22, 2016. I cover the following three topics, with most of the time spent on the third: 1. The Role of the Magisterium for Catholic Medical Professionals; 2. Object/Intention/Circumstances and the Hippocratic Oath; 3. The Nature and Dignity of Persons: Metaphysics of the Person. (Topic 3 is covered from a different angle than how I cover it in the 2018 talk of a similar title.
