The Baylor University Medical Ethics Seminar aims to provide a forum for health care professionals to reflect together about the ways in which their shared Christian faith might inform their practice of medicine.

The inaugural seminar was held in October 2014 at Baylor's McLane Stadium. Responding to an expressed desire on the part of local physicians for a chance to think together about pressing issues in the practice of medicine, the banquet brought together local physicians, hospital administrators, nurses, chaplains and other health care professionals. Our goal is to establish the seminar as an annual event for physicians and others to consider the ways in which shared Christian faith might speak to significant questions of our day.
