Centre for Biomedical Ethics



The Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE), established in 2006 to provide undergraduate and postgraduate education in medical ethics at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUSmed), is honoured to host ICCEC 2017 with major support from the Singapore Ministry of Health.

Singapore has made consistent investments in clinical ethics training through the Clinical Ethics Network and Research Ethics Support Project (CENTRES), an initiative of CBmE supported by the Ministry of Health. CENTRES extends ethics capacity-building efforts to the wider doctor population and allied health professionals in Singapore, and is continuously raising the bar for clinical ethics engagement among members of the local hospital ethics committee network and the international community through its annual international clinical ethics conferences.
