The Tough Cases ethics discussion series is supported by the Allen Lein Ethics in Medicine Fund and meets once monthly. It provides an opportunity for physicians, nurses, social workers, other clinical staff, and students anticipating a career in medicine or science to increase awareness of, and sensitivity to, ethical issues.

Unless otherwise noted, all meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month, noon – 1:30 p.m. UCSD Medical Center room 11-309 (Hospital In-patient Tower).
