Our Topics


FASPE draws on its unique historical context for the study of ethics in the professions today to participate in the non-partisan public discourse on ethical issues that touch the professions.

FASPE speaks—in publications, panel discussions and other forums and media—through its staff, its faculty and its fellows. In addition, FASPE seeks to identify third-party writings and public commentary that are timely and relevant. Our Topics represents a continuing flow of articles and discussions that we believe are relevant and of particular interest.


I’m thrilled to announced that I have been selected as one of the American College of Surgeons-McLean Center Surgical Ethics Fellows for this upcoming year!! Thank you @BrunsvoldMD @chipsurgeon @GretchenSchwa10 for the support and mentorship! @UMNSurgery @RASACS @FASPEnews

@womeninmedchat A4: I was fortunate to participate in @FASPEnews , ethical fellowship that studies behaviors of doctors in Nazi Germany. Sounds extreme, but reading Lipton's "The Nazi Doctors" gave me an ethical north star that I will follow to the end. #womeninmedicine

Spent an unforgettable two weeks on @FASPEnews fellowship studying professional ethics through the lens of the Holocaust. Ever grateful to FASPE faculty, staff, and fellows in the law, business and journalism programs for the invaluable lessons. #QuestionYourEthics
