Columbia's bioethics programs address critical issues concerning the ethical, legal and social implications of advances in biotechnology and biomedicine, enabling students to study with faculty from across the University, and to draw on the extraordinary resources of its top schools:
|The College of Physicians and Surgeons||The School of Nursing|
|Columbia Law School||The School of Arts and Sciences|
|The Mailman School of Public Health||The School of International and Public Affairs|
