Cambridge University Press partners with Sciences Po, Chesapeake IRB, Reid Hall (Columbia University) and Program in Medicine and Human Values, to host the Cambridge Consortium for Bioethics Education. This annual consortium, allied with the International Bioethics Retreat, brings bioethics educators from all over the world to engage in information sharing, bioethics education innovation, and scholarship. We at PMHV take pride in our long-standing international collaborations, thus we are well represented as both events are organized by Dr. Thomasine Kushner, with Dr. William Andereck serving as Master of Ceremonies.
