The Association of Bioethics Program Directors (ABPD) represents the leadership of over 70 academic bioethics programs across North America. The ABPD exists to serve the needs of bioethics programs and their directors. The Association’s work helps to foster the development and success of bioethics programs housed in academic institutions, by creating information of use to program directors, acting as a clearinghouse for information, and hosting conversations among peers about issues that are important for those in leadership positions.
