The CMAV will be hosting a Seminar Series on the 'Foundations of Christian Ethics'  consisting of eight lectures and discussion sessions. The series is open to all university students and young professionals, especially medical and healthcare students and young doctors and nurses.


This is a unique and rare opportunity to receive high level teaching

and guidance in these essential yet often neglected areas of education.


Course leaders will include, Fr Paschal Corby OFM Conv and Fr Brendan Arthur.

It is hoped these monthly sessions will provide the necessary groundwork and establish a sound philosophical anthropology and theology to help young health professionals, as well as other young Christians, to engage seriously with the difficult ethical issues they will face throughout their lives and in their careers.
