Research and Teaching Areas

My recent research traces the meaning of vocation in the lives of physicians, and it explores how the changing character of expectations on both sides of the physician-patient relation have affected American medicine, and I would argue, American life. A further piece of that research has appeared as "Medical Publicity Before Biotheics: Nineteenth-Century Illustrations of Twentieth-Century Dilemmas," in Bioethics and Society: Constructing the Ethical Enterprise, edited by Raymond DeVries and Janaradan Subedi (Prentice-Hall).
