Program in Women and Children’s Bioethics

About the Program

Launched by the Departments of Pediatrics and Obstetrics/Gynecology in 2012, the Program’s mission is to conduct research, develop educational programs, and provide leadership on the ethical challenges confronting expectant mothers and children today. The scope of our interdisciplinary faculty’s scholarship includes theoretical and empirical research, in clinical as well as research ethics. Consisting of Ethics Grand Rounds, a quarterly seminar series, ethics rounds on hospital units, and an integrated ethics curriculum for house staff, the educational program is intended to benefit the broad community of the Women and Children’s Hospital and beyond.
