The Division of Medical Ethics was created in 2011 in the Department of Medicine to build upon the health system’s successful track record and commitment to incorporate bioethics into clinical practice and physician education. The Division Chief is Dr. Samuel Packer who also is Chair of the Ethics Committees at North Shore University Hospital, Long Island Jewish Medical Center and Cohen’s Children’s Medical Center. The Ethics Consult Service functions as an arm of the Ethics Committee and is led by Renée McLeod-Sordjan, and the Medical Ethics Attending staff: Frederick Smith, Lourdes Bahamonde, Mitchell Adler and William Doscher. In addition, we have an Ethics Fellowship Program and significant responsibilities for professionalism education at the Hofstra North Shore - LIJ School of Medicine. Our focus is clinical medical ethics, both in practice and in education.
