The Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy strives to create a cohesive community of ethics scholars in the Houston academic and medical community. Membership is generally for those individuals in TMC member institutions interested or actively participating in one or more of the core missions of the center (clinical ethics, health policy, teaching, or research). Members are encouraged to contribute to the center through our core missions as well as attend the different events that the center holds throughout the year.

We have an ongoing application process for those interested in becoming a center affiliated member and all interested parties are encouraged to apply.

We are very excited to work with all of you to create a more engaged and intellectually stimulating community of ethics scholars at the College!
