Renowned scholars Sabine Hildbrandt MD FAAA and Howard Israel DDSD will join us to talk about the intersection of medical education, ethics, and historical accountability, through an examination of the infamous Pernkopf Atlas, known for its detailed anatomical illustrations derived from victims of the Nazi regime. This talk will grapple with the ethical dilemmas surrounding the use of the Atlas in medical education, and the moral responsibilities of medical professionals to confront the legacies of the past while striving for critical reflection and conscientious decision-making in the pursuit of medical knowledge and progress.
