Medical Ethics

Dr. Joseph Fins

Joseph J. Fins, M.D., Chief

Welcome to the Division of Medical Ethics. Our 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 our 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 of Medical Ethics offers a wealth of resources to the entire medical community, including providing curricular support for Weill Cornell Medical College, offering an ethics consultations service, and serving as the Ethics Core of the Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC).
