Icahn School of Medicine has a broad and comprehensive program in bioethics. Beginning in 1980 as the work of a small faculty committee on Medical Ethics chaired by James J. Strain, MD, an Ethics Committee chaired by Kurt Hirschhorn, MD, and in 1981 a Faculty Seminar in the History and Philosophy of Medicine organized by Daniel A. Moros, MD, over the years the program has experienced remarkable expansion.
Our program has grown to include a curriculum for teaching bioethics to MD and PhD students, house staff, and students in our several master's degree programs. We also have maintain institutional relationships between Icahn School of Medicine, the Graduate Center, CUNY, The Union Graduate College, and an international academic consortium on bioethics that includes Oxford University, King's College, London, The Free University of Amsterdam, and Bar Ilan University.
We invite those of you who are interested in future careers and leadership roles in the bioethics field and want to learn more to visit our curriculum and educational program pages.
