As a Radcliffe Institute fellow, I will write Patients with Passports: Medical Tourism, Law, and Ethics (under contract with Oxford University Press). This book will be the first comprehensive analysis of the legal and ethical issues raised with multiple varieties of medical tourism—for services that are legal in the home and destination country (e.g., hip replacements, cardiac bypass), for services that are illegal in the home country but legal in the destination country (e.g., abortion, assisted suicide, reproductive technologies, stem cell treatments), and for services that are illegal in both places (e.g., organ sale).
I am seeking the assistance of research partners who will be responsible for page proofing, gathering materials, and managing media contacts. They will learn about bioethics, globalization of health care, etc. Students should have an interest in law, possess editing skills, and must be detailed oriented.
