2019 Pellegrino Young Scholars' Prize

An important new feature of the Annual Pellegrino Symposium, sponsored by the Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics at Georgetown University, is the Pellegrino Young Scholars’ Prize.  We invited graduate students, professional students, resident physicians, and post-doctoral fellows to submit essays addressing theoretical questions or ethical issues in “Patient-Centered Medicine,” in conversation with the work of Pellegrino. The author of the winning essay received a $500 prize and is invited to present the work in a 45-minute lecture at this year’s Annual Pellegrino Symposium to be held at Georgetown University on April 26, 2019. 

The winning essay will be published in an issue of the journal Theoretical Medicine and Bioethics.  Three runner-up essays will be considered for publication in Philosophy, Ethics and Humanities in Medicine (if merited, but not guaranteed) for an issue in 2019-2020.

The 2019 essay winner is:
