|Project title||Professionalism in Medicine|
|Chapter||University of Michigan Medical School|
|Project Coordinator||Jason Cheng|
|Summary of project||We invited a local faculty expert to speak on his construction of ethics as it applies to the medical profession. He talked about the necessary foundations of professional ethics and the pillars. In difficult cases, doctors may have to compromise one of the pillars to uphold the ones that are important to the situation. He was a dynamic speaker who kept the talk interactive.
We served pizza as an incentive for students to attend.

(1 = unsuccesful, 5 = very successful)
|Lessons/suggestions||It's good to have a speaker who can really draw people in. We also chose what we thought was a good date, but another student group came in and did a lunch as well, so participation wasn't as good as I would have liked.|
