Welcome/Purpose of the Guide


The Edmund D. Pellegrino Center for Clinical Bioethics (PCCB) at Georgetown University Medical Center was established over two decades ago in order to create a center of excellence, filling a unique need for bioethics that is directly oriented towards clinical medicine and strongly rooted in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition. In its situation at Georgetown University, it complements the activity and interests of the renowned Kennedy Institute of Ethics, the Philosophy Department and Law Center.
