Ethics & Professionalism in Caring

Ethics & Professionalism in Caring overview

Research conducted by the EPIC group is primarily focused on three areas:

  • Organ donation and transplantation, including Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation; 
  • Clinical ethics consultation; and
  • Medical humanities (including bioart)

Additionally, EPIC oversees Medical Humanities Week which includes a curated art exhibit of medical student mixed media creations. A goal of the EPIC research group is to train medical students to become future physician-investigators.
