Medical Ethics

The Division of Medical Ethics was launched in July of 2012. Its founding Director is Arthur L Caplan, PhD. The Division has four key areas of activity:

  1. to enhance and integrate bioethics in the curriculum of the NYU medical school, professional schools, undergraduate programs and graduate education,
  2. to generate novel and useful research in core areas including mental health, vaccines, research ethics, rationing, end of life care and sports and society,
  3. to provide policy advice and guidance to NGOs, professional societies, industry, government, foundations, patient organizations, and other groups and institutions interested in bioethical issues, and
  4. to foster careers in bioethics.
