The Department of Bioethics and Interdisciplinary Studies at the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University carries out a three-fold mission of professional education, research, and service.

The department teaches required courses in all four years of medical school, including courses on the ethical and social aspects of medicine in the first and second years, case-based ethics seminars with third-year students during their various clinical clerkship rotations, and "selectives" in ethics, law, philosophy, history, literature, end-of-life issues, spirituality, leadership, and social policy for fourth-year students.  In addition, the faculty teach in the Honors College, the PA program, the MPH program, and also offer a graduate course for the basic science students.

The department contributes to the intellectual life of the university, the medical center, and the community through its its Readers' Theater Program and participation in a variety of continuing education programs.  Faculty members also serve on school of medicine, university, and hospital committees, including those which address ethical issues.
