The Institute of Medical Ethics (IME)

is a charitable organisation dedicated to improving education and debate in medical ethics. The IME is founder and co-owner of the Journal of Medical Ethics (JME) a leading international journal reflecting the whole field of medical ethics.

Our mission is "promoting and supporting the impartial study and understanding of medical ethics and its integration into clinical practice through education, research, and publication". We are currently involved in organising conferences, providing grants to students interested in medical ethics and in a project to support and develop medical ethics and law teaching in UK medical schools.
