Overview

Our mission is to provide leadership in bioethics research, education, practice and public engagement.

We strive to prepare students to provide respectful, humane patient care, to address current ethical problems in health care through research and discussion and to engage with providers, patients, and families to resolve their ethical conflicts.

We use relevant medicine, law, moral reasoning, literature, drama and art to inform students about ethical issues and prepare them to empathize and communicate compassionately.
