TRACE Program in Italy The MA in Bioethics Program is exploring global opportunities for bioethical education, including participation in The Renaissance at the Center for Ethics’ (TRACE) 6-week Italian Study Abroad Summer 2017 Program, Bioethics in Italy: Healing through Italian Culture, Medicine & Compassion. Here’s our first MAB student in this international program, Victoria Vorholt, with the Center for Ethics Director of Development Wayne Silverman. They are at the Castel del Monte, the 13th-century geometrically perfect castle of the beloved and benevolent King Frederick II. Amongst other achievements, Frederick was known for being the first king to publically outlaw the unethical practice of trial by ordeal (torture of the defendant’s body in order to ascertain guilt or innocence).

TRACE at the Carlos To complement the bioethical education offered by our more traditional classes, the MA in Bioethics Program also organizes special events related to healthcare and ethics.  One of our most recent events of this kind was organized in collaboration with T.R.A.C.E.: The Renaissance Academy @ Center for Ethics and the Carlos Museum.  On March 31st, 2017, we hosted a creative evening for bioethics and healthcare professional students focused on exploring images of the shaman (healer) and disability in the art of the Americas at the Carlos Museum.  Elizabeth Hornor, the Carlos Museum’s Marguerite Colville Ingram Director of Education, offered a tour of specific art pieces.  The tour was followed by guided reflection, wine and cheese.  In addition to involving students from bioethics, it also involved students from medicine, nursing and physiotherapy.  For more information on this event, visit the T.R.A.C.E. website.
