Medical Ethics and Law Unit

Welcome to the Medical Ethics and Law Unit

The Medical Ethics and Law Unit was set up in 2008 as a centre for education and research.

The aims of the unit are:

  1. To develop and deliver an engaging undergraduate curriculum suitable for doctors practising twenty-first century medicine
  2. To prepare students for the ethically challenging situations they will face as Foundation Year doctors
  3. To forge connections with other medical schools, with a view to exploring best practice
  4. To conduct research into important ethical issues relating to medical practice and education

The Unit is part of UCL Medical School and works closely with members of the school in medical teaching and research.
