Medical Ethics

Joseph J. Fins, MD

Welcome to the Division of Medical Ethics. The Division seeks to discover how to provide the most ethical care to patients and research subjects, to share this knowledge with physicians, students, and researchers, and to create standards of ethical care. The Division of Medical Ethics is active in both the Joan and Sanford I. Weill Department of Medicine and Public Health. The division’s main activities involve clinical care and education. Through the division’s clinical and educational initiatives, medical students acquire knowledge and skills that enable them to improve the health of their patients and the communities they serve. The Division offers a wealth of resources to the entire medical community, including providing curricular support for the Medical College, offering the ethics consultations service and serving as the Ethics Core of the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC).
