About the Center for Bioethics
Housed within the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and College of Medicine, the Center for Bioethics stands as a forum for collaborative research, education, and clinical consultation. The Center mobilizes the necessary conversation and executes initiatives to better accomplish the OSU Wexner Medical Center's mission "to improve people's lives through innovation in research, education, and patient care." Ethics being a dynamic field subsequently includes multiple interprofessional disciplines and perspectives to give consideration to theoretical ethics, empirical ethics, professionalism, humanities, spirituality, religion, law, and public policy. Thus, the Center for Bioethics stands as a forum for collaborative research, education, and clinical consultation. Therefore, the Center for Bioethics seeks to carry out the Medical Center vision, "working as a team, to shape the future of medicine by creating, disseminating, and applying new knowledge, and by personalizing health care to meet the needs of each person."
The Center for Bioethics pursues such goals through scholarship, mentorship and education, and facilitating dialogue within the community. Such cornerstones will be promoted through training those who can make enriching contributions to the field of bioethics, developing increased educational opportunities at all levels of the university, and providing venues to bring together academics and healthcare professionals.
The Division of Bioethics within the College of Medicine’s Department of Biomedical Education and Anatomy serves as the tap root for the Center. The Division is the home for the College of Medicine’s core bioethics faculty, the graduate and undergraduate programs in bioethics, and the bioethics related service to the medical center.
