Patrick Smith Defends Dissertation

Date: 10/1/2013

Our department is pleased to congratulate WSU philosophy graduate student Patrick Smith (bottom row, center below), who just successfully defended his dissertation, "A Distinction without a Moral Difference? An Essay on the Difference Between Palliative Sedation and Physician-Assisted Death."

Dr. Smith (as he will soon be known) is on the faculty of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary near Boston. He just received an academic appointment as a Research Fellow in Medical Ethics through the Dept. of Global Health and Social Medicine at the Harvard Medical School for 2013-2014.
