Treating Medical Errors: A Colloquium
Pediatric residents from Penn State's College of Medicine will join Penn State Law students for an interdisciplinary program combining elements of a medical malpractice trial with opportunities for collaboration and discussion.
Before the mock trial begins, future legal and medical professionals will work together to promote understanding of one another's professional perspectives and prepare for the case. After the morning trial activities, medical residents and law students will "deliberate" over lunch to reach a verdict in the case. An interdisciplinary discussion will follow in the afternoon.
This event is open to Penn State students of law and medicine as well as faculty and staff of the Penn State College of Medicine and the Law School. Attendees for this free event are asked to register online.
