Posted by Linda W. Perkins on June 13, 2017

June 12, 2017 (HOUSTON) — Center for Medicine after the Holocaust (CMATH) announced today that it has added Rabbi Herbert Yoskowitz of Adat Shalom Synagogue in Farmington Hills, Michigan to its group of CMATH Champions.

CMATH Champions are either faculty members in schools of medicine, nursing, public health and other health sciences, or other scholarly individuals who study, teach and research medicine and the Holocaust. Using videos, content modules and other resources provided by the Center for Medicine after the Holocaust, they challenge their students and colleagues to personally confront the behavior and ethics of medical professionals in Germany, the United States and elsewhere immediately before, during and after the Third Reich. CMATH Champions also challenge their students and colleagues to apply this new knowledge to contemporary medical practice, research and healthcare policy.

Yoskowitz plans on teaching medical students about the atrocities Nazi physicians perpetrated during the World War II era in a seven-session seminar series called “Nazi Medicine and Its Impact on the Founding of Bioethics” at the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine (OUWB), October 4 through November 15. He believes that OUWB School of Medicine is the only medical school in Michigan to offer such a course.
