The Division of Medical Ethics was launched in July of 2012. Its founding Director is Arthur L Caplan, PhD. The Division has four key areas of activity:
- to enhance and integrate bioethics in the curriculum of the NYU medical school, professional schools, undergraduate programs and graduate education,
- to generate novel and useful research in core areas including mental health, vaccines, research ethics, rationing, end of life care and sports and society,
- to provide policy advice and guidance to NGOs, professional societies, industry, government, foundations, patient organizations, and other groups and institutions interested in bioethical issues, and
- to foster careers in bioethics.
