If you ask most medical school deans if they have a course, program, or center doing bioethics, they will enthusiastically assure you that they do. And their enthusiasm for bioethics grows exponentially in proportion to their interest in showing that they are doing something about managing research ethics issues at their institutions. The same can be said about the entire biomedical research establishment - from private companies to independent research centers to professional organizations - bioethics is on the masthead, the organizational chart, and the agenda of the annual meeting. Not to worry - medicine's got ethics.
