Professor Sarma to Lecture at Cleveland Clinic Bioethics Grand Rounds, Monday, November 12, 2018

“On Hindu Bioethics: Respecting Diverse Beliefs in the Context of Western Medicine’s Standards of Care”

Dr. Sarma fleshes out the bioethical complexities that emerge from a malpractice case for which he was retained as an expert consultant, concerning an innocent infant, a child of Hindu parents, who was circumcised without the required parental consent. He argues that, given Hindu beliefs about the status and integrity of the body, the malpractice is contextually egregious, violates Hindu bioethics, and ought to incur consequential, rather than nominal, damages. In his presentation of the case, attendees will learn the fundamentals of Hindu bioethics as well as its application to a relevant case.
