Ethics on Tap, the Department's Resident-led initiative to collaborate with the hospital’s ethics committee, has received a $5,000.00 grant from the Trent Foundation. The grant application was submitted by Dept. Chair Matthew Barber, MD, MHS, and Education Chief Resident Luke Gatta, MD. Funding will continue Ethics on Tap's initiative to bring together members of the Department to discuss decision-making in obstetrics and gynecology as it relates to the common good.

"Amateur philosophers" (i.e Residents, Fellows and attendings) meet regularly over drinks to ask the nagging question,“What ought we, as physicians, to do?” The next event will be co-led by Geeta Swamy, MD, Vice Chair for Research and Faculty Development, and Phil Rosoff, MD (Chair Emeritus of DUH Ethics Committee), to discuss attribution in research and authorship. 

Resident Daniel Spinosa, MD, will be taking the lead on the Ethics on Tap group discussions in the future.
