The Program in Medical Ethics has been an integral part of the department since its founding in 1973.   (More information --> About Us)

Welcome to new faculty Karola Kreitmair

Medical History & Bioethics offers a warm welcome to Karola V. Kreitmair who joined the department as an Assistant Professor this fall. Clinical ethics, neuroethics, self-tracking and phenomenology, and citizen science and gamification stand out among her many interests in addition to having recently written, directed, and produced a play entitled Homo ex Machina thanks to a grant from the Medicine and the Muse program at Stanford University. Welcome to Karola!
