Bioethics Grand Rounds to examine ethics of concierge medicine

February 19, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Michigan Medicine has launched Victors Care, a concierge medical care model designed to deliver increased access, convenience and individually-tailored support within a primary care practice for patients who pay for membership.

Like all concierge care programs, Victors Care raises ethical issues relating to justice, fairness, access and consistency with the mission of Michigan Medicine.

The upcoming Bioethics Grand Rounds will address the ethical issues of concierge care in a panel format with institutional leaders. The panel will address your questions directly. Questions will be solicited during the session, and can be submitted in advance by clicking here.
