Chris Tweedt has been awarded the first Baylor Clinical Fellowship, which he completed in May 2017. This innovative fellowship, a joint effort of Baylor’s Medical Humanities Program and the Philosophy Department, is awarded to a graduate student who will teach or research in areas related to professional medicine and clinical practice. This opportunity is designed to enhance the fellow’s scholarship with practical experience at the bedside and to provide insight into the complexities of modern medical decision making. The Fellow accompanies faculty and residents from Waco’s Family Health Center on daily hospital rounds, attends daily discussions with medical professionals, and leads a presentation with physicians in an area related to medical ethics at the end of the Fellowship. Chris Tweedt, the first Clinical Fellow, will teach Medical Ethics at Christopher Newport University in the fall of 2017.
