Elective Rotation: Medical Ethics with Dr. Shashidhara
Location: CPMC St. Lukes in San Francisco, CA
Dr. Shilpa Shashidhara is the bioethicist that we work closely with at Sutter Santa Rosa. She also works at other hospitals in the bay area. I spent several full days with her at St. Luke’s in San Francisco seeing patients, sitting in on family meetings, and discussing everything from capacity to futile treatment to ethics of long term life support.
