Student Fellow Alumnus

During his Fellowship, J. Bradley Segal was a medical student at Harvard Medical School where he was enrolled in a dual MD/Master of Bioethics degree program. Brad received his BA and BS from UC San Diego where he double majored in Philosophy and Physiology/Neuroscience. In his first year at HMS, Brad’s paper on the ethics of organ transplantation was awarded the Henry K. Beecher Prize in Medical Ethics. He has also studied the ethical implications of our evolving understanding of the brain, and has published on whether and when individual genetics and neurobiology should mitigate a criminal defendant’s moral culpability. Brad was selected for a summer 2017 Fellowship at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE). During his Fellowship, he studied what ‘harm’ means in the medical context; his final paper was entitled "Organ donation: First, do no (wrongful) harm."
