Welcome to the Consortium Ethics Program at the

University of Pittsburgh

Are you looking to enhance person-centered care? Educate ethics consultants? Revitalize an ethics committee? The CEP can help!

The Consortium Ethics Program (CEP) is your home for ongoing, comprehensive health care ethics education that supports professional development and provides the skills to address ethical dilemmas.

We are the premier regional health care ethics education network in western Pennsylvania serving the surrounding tristate area. We provide long-term, continuing ethics education for a diversity of professionals, including nurses, physicians, attorneys, social workers, administrators, and others interested in health care ethics. Founded in 1990, the CEP is a collaborative effort of the University of Pittsburgh Department of Medicine, Division of General Internal Medicine, and the University of Pittsburgh Center for Bioethics and Health Law. Learn more about the CEP here!


The CEP is accepting membership inquiries for the 2015-2016 year. Click here to learn about CEP membership opportunities!
