Dr. Erik Clary


Dr. Erik Clary: Post-Doctoral Research Fellow for the CFC

For many here at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Erik Clary is no stranger. A former faculty researcher in the Department of Surgery at Duke University Medical Center, Erik left the medical academy in 2005 to pursue MDiv studies at Southeastern. Honing in on a call to academic ministry in the field of Christian ethics, he pursued additional studies leading to an MA degree in Bioethics from Trinity International University in Chicago and, most recently, a PhD in Theological Ethics from Southeastern. For the PhD work, Erik’s dissertation addressed the ethics of withdrawing artificial nutrition and hydration from people diagnosed as being in a persistent vegetative state.
