Bioethics & Medical Humanities

"AI already affects everyone. It is imperative that we consider the ethical challenges introduced by AI using a collaborative multidisciplinary approach that engages professionals and communities."

-Kelly Michelson, MD, MPH, Director, Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities

The Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities supports both the Institute for Augmented Intelligence in Medicine and the Institute for Public Health and Medicine. Our mission is to advance bioethics and medical humanities in the modern, diverse, expanding healthcare environment through education, application, innovation, and thought leadership. Nowhere is healthcare expanding larger and faster than in the area of artificial intelligence (AI). With the introduction of new technology comes a myriad of new ethical challenges. AI pushes the boundaries of privacy and confidentiality potentially contributing to mistrust or views about trustworthiness in healthcare and healthcare systems. While medicine has moved in the last half century to one emphasizing patient autonomy, we are embarking on a new era that will expand the patient-physician relationship to interactions that incorporate input from patients, clinical teams and technology.  This transition will impact the clinician role, education, legal and regulatory oversight, care delivery, and even how we view humanity. Our members reflect experts in a broad range of clinical subspecialties, medical education, the law, empirical research, and normative thought.

Bioethics & Medical Humanities Conference Series
We invite you to the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities Annual conference. This year’s conference  entitled, “Health Across Boarders” is co-sponsored by Institute for Public Health and Medicine and the Institute for Global Health. The theme was chosen to stimulate conversation around how borders, both geographic and conceptual, can establish inclusion and exclusion, unity and conflict—ideas that have taken on new dimensions and urgency in the past year.

Current Work Highlight
We congratulate Dr. Elisa Gordon on her recently funded National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease RO1 award entitled, “Integrating a culturally competent APOL1 genetic testing program into living donor evaluation.” This project will integrate a chatbot, a mobile app that uses artificial intelligence to provide information to patients, as part of a multicomponent intervention to provide culturally competent counseling for African Americans considering living donation for kidney transplantation.
More Information on Dr. Gordon's Work
Finally, over the past year, the Center for Bioethics and Medical Humanities launched the Chicago Bioethics Coalition, a multidisciplinary, inter-institutional group of people across the Chicagoland area and within Illinois thinking about the bioethical issues that impact healthcare. This coalition has provided a rich network of collaborators. For anyone interested in joining this group or connecting with others in the Chicagoland area to consider challenges at the intersection of AI and bioethics, please contact Dr. Kelly Michelson.
