Greenwall Fellowship in Bioethics and Health Policy



The Greenwall Fellowship Program in Bioethics and Health Policy provided an unparalleled opportunity for fellowship and faculty development training in bioethics and health policy. It was a collaborative effort of The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and Georgetown University (GU). Together, JHU and GU constitute one of the largest and most diverse faculty in bioethics anywhere. At JHU, Greenwall Fellows worked with faculty of the Berman Institute, the Philosophy Department, the School of Medicine, and the Bloomberg School of Public Health. At Georgetown, Fellows worked with faculty of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, the Philosophy Department, and the Law Center.

The Greenwall Fellowship program and its faculty covered much of the waterfront of issues and methodologies in bioethics, from ethics and advances in biomedical science, to ethics and public health and health policy, to ethics and clinical care. The defining focus of the Program, however, was bioethics and public policy. Although we provided fellows who wish an exposure to clinical medical ethics with clinically oriented opportunities, our primary emphasis was the intersection of scholarship in bioethics with the formation and evaluation of public policy.

Our fellows have an impressive publication record. As a result of research done while a fellow, Greenwall Fellows have published in such journals as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American Medical Association, Health Affairs, Philosophy and Public Affairs, Ethics, Philosophical Studies, Health Economics, Journal of Social Philosophy, Journal of Clinical Ethics, Journal of Medical Ethics, Journal of Law, Medicine and Ethics, Jurimetrics, Health Care Analysis, American Journal of Bioethics, Fertility and Sterility, Hastings Center Report, Journal of General Internal Medicine, Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law and Ethics, Indiana Health Law Review, University of North Carolina Law Review, American Journal of Law and Medicine, and Milbank Quarterly. Fellows have also contributed essays to books published by such presses as Cornell, University of Michigan, and Oxford University. One fellow completed a book forthcoming from Routledge. We have 10 years experience training Greenwall Fellows and our alumni are among the next generation of leaders in bioethics at Universities throughout the United States, and beyond, such asthe University of California – San Francisco, Duke, Ohio State University, George Washington University, University of South Carolina, University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, University of Edinburgh, Johns Hopkins University, University of Minnesota, Moravian College and the University of Delaware.
