Journal of Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine

Arizona State University partners with Creighton University

The Journal of Philosophy, Ethics, and Humanities in Medicine is uniquely positioned at the intersection of medical and bioethics, philosophy of medicine, and medical humanities, and provides a forum for exploring and addressing how new developments in biomedicine foster philosophical, ethical and social issues, questions and possible solutions. The ethos of the journal acknowledges the importance of both obtaining new facts, tools and capabilities in medicine, and of engaging new ways of thinking about and expressing the meanings and effects of these emerging developments. The journal encompasses the philosophical and ethical aspects of clinical research and practice, and also welcomes papers focusing upon medicine and humanities, including the history of medicine, and medicine and the arts.

In the summer of 2021, the journal transferred to joint-editorship shared between the Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at Arizona State University and the Department of Medical Humanities in the School of Medicine at Creighton University (CU). Arizona State University and Creighton are collaborating on a medical humanities program for Creighton’s medical students who will be enrolling at Creighton’s new medical school campus in Phoenix. An offshoot of that collaboration is the joint institutional involvement with PEHM, led by co-editors in chief Elizabeth Langland at Arizona State University and Dr. Kevin FitzGerald at Creighton University. Associate Editors include Erica O’Neil and Elizabeth Grumbach from ASU, and Matt Reznicek and Tracy Leavelle from CU.
