The Program in Medical Ethics, Humanities, and Law is a multidisciplinary academic program focused on historical, perennial, and emerging issues relating to the practice of modern medicine. The Program mission is to promote robust inquiry, interprofessional dialogue, meaningful educational opportunities, and professional and humanistic development in those aspiring to become physicians, as well as other individuals engaged in the delivery of healthcare.
Program faculty have diverse professional and academic backgrounds, normative frameworks, and broad research interests. Faculty integrate ethics, humanities, and legal instruction throughout the medical school curriculum. In addition to didactic and team-based learning instruction for undergraduate medical students, faculty actively participate in development of ethics curricula in the medical school's residency programs. Faculty also provide ethics education and clinical ethics consultation support at Borgess Medical Center and Bronson Methodist Hospital.
