The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities is the meeting place for a variety of disciplines and studies whose central focus is health care and human beings. The Center is the locus for interdisciplinary research, education and service in bioethics and medical humanities. Bioethics is understood broadly to include ethical issues in clinical medicine, public health and health policy and reform, and embraces theoretical reflection on the role of values in health care professions. It also seeks to integrate the humanities and medicine and the theoretical foundations for such reflections, including ethical and political theory.

The Center is an outgrowth of collaborative teaching begun in 1985 by Drs. Donald E. Saunders, Jr., of USC School of Medicine and Nora K. Bell of the USC Department of Philosophy. In 1994 the Center was reorganized as the Joint Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities, co-sponsored by Richland Memorial Hospital (Palmetto Health Alliance), the USC School of Medicine and the Institute for Public Service and Policy Research.
