Tia Powell, MD, was recently named one of nine new 2014 Hastings Center Fellows. The Fellows are an elected association of researchers from around the world whose distinguished contributions in their fields have been influential in bioethics.
The Center is active in many areas, including education, policy development, research and clinical work. The Center runs an active bioethics consultation service and bioethics committee and promotes ethics education and scholarship within and beyond the institution.
- Bioethics Consultation. The Center provides bioethics consultation to providers, patients, family members, and designated representatives for challenging medical decisions in which important values are at stake.
- Bioethics Committee. Members of the committee meet regularly to analyze bioethical issues, develop hospital policy, review cases and promote bioethics education.
- Bioethics Education: The Center offers bioethics education to medical students, house staff, and other associates throughout Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Our Certificate Program in Bioethics and Medical Humanities is the longest running bioethics educational program in the tri-state area.
The Einstein-Cardozo Master of Science in Bioethics is a collaboration of Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Benjamin Cardozo School of Law.
- Internships. The Center offers a small number of internships during the summer and occasionally during the school year.
