Since 1984, Ethics & Medicine has tackled the tough issues of bioethics from an international perspective. The journal reasserts the Hippocratic consensus in medicine on the conviction that only a robust medical professionalism is able to withstand the challenges of emerging technologies and their clinical applications.
First published in Britain under the visionary editorship of Nigel Cameron, Ph.D., the journal quickly gained international prominence and moved to address the developing bioethics agenda from the perspective of the Hippocratic tradition. Now under the editorship of C. Ben Mitchell, Ph.D., that tradition continues.
E&M readers are provided in each issue the latest in contemporary thought, analysis and application about issues in the ever changing field of medical and biotechnology.
