Medical Ethics & Humanities

Medical Ethics and Humanities is a program within the Division of General Internal Medicine. Our mission is to prepare physicians 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 physicians about ethical issues and prepare them to empathize and communicate compassionately.
