Welcome to our Department!

The Department of the History, Philosophy and Ethics of Medicine is an institute dedicated to research and education on a wide spectrum of medical theory and practice.

We research and teach the history and ethics of medicine, as well as medical theory and philosophy of science. These topics are vital to medical practitioners and researchers of tomorrow.

Our research connects the history of medicine and the life sciences to modern questions about philosophy and medical ethics. By exploring the social and cultural dimensions of medicine we connect biomedical research to the humanities and social sciences.

Our department is also a member of the Center for Health and Society of the Medical Faculty of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf.
