The Center for Biomedical Ethics exists as a resource for Brown Medical School, Brown University and the greater Providence community. Our primary responsibility is for the education in areas of medical ethics of the Brown medical students and residents in affiliated programs. Medical professionals must be aware of the ethical dimension inherent in all medical interactions and must have the tools and resources to both recognize and address this ethical component. Brown medical students receive instruction in a seminar format in each of their required clinical clerkships. In addition, the Center has supported the formation of the Ocean State Ethics Network, a collaborative group that brings together members of the ethics committees of area hospitals to discuss current topics in medical ethics. It is also developing a public forum for discussion of issues of interest to the lay public in biomedical ethics.
