David Orentlicher is an educator, physician, attorney, and an American politician. He is a member of the Democratic Party. He is the Samuel R. Rosen Professor and Co-Director of the Center for Law and Health at Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. He also is an adjunct professor at Indiana University School of Medicine where he serves on the faculty of the Center for Bioethics. He teaches courses in health care law, constitutional law, criminal law and legal ethics, and he serves as an ethics consultant at Methodist, University and Wishard Hospitals.

Life and career[edit]

Orentlicher graduated from Harvard Medical School and then completed an internship in internal medicine. After practicing as a family physician, he returned to Harvard Law School for his Juris Doctor. After clerking on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, he practiced law for two years before joining the American Medical Association, where he served as Ethics and Health Policy Counsel and directed the AMA's division of medical ethics. While there, he drafted the AMA's first ever Patients' Bill of Rights, guidelines for physician investment in health care facilities that were incorporated into federal law, and guidelines on gifts to physicians from industry that have become the industry standard and a standard recognized by the federal government. He helped develop many other positions—on end-of-life matters, organ transplantation, and reproductive issues—that have been cited by courts and government agencies in their decision-making. He also held adjunct appointments at the University of Chicago Law School and Northwestern University Medical School. He is a fellow of the Hastings Center, an independent bioethics research institution.[1]

Orentlicher is a board member for his neighborhood association, the Highland-Kessler Civic League. He also serves on the board of Reach Out and Read Indiana and the Indiana Coalition Against Sexual Assault.

Orentlicher lives in Indianapolis with his wife, Judy, son, Cy, and their daughter, Shayna. They belong to Congregation Beth-El Zedeck, where the couple have taught religious classes and Orentlicher has served on the board of directors.
