In today's world, doctors and lawyers may only connect professionally when facing each other in the courtroom and often only as adversaries. The Center for Medicine and Law aims to shift this focus from the courtroom to the classroom by empowering health providers, attorneys and other stakeholders to work together in a collaborative setting on health law issues. Founded in July 2011, the center is the first of its kind in the nation to focus on collaboration between medicine and law and to serve as an objective and informative resource for health-related professions, policymakers, the media, the public, and other academic institutions with similar interests.
What We Do
The center sponsors conferences, research scholarship and educational programs on a variety of key topics at the intersection of medicine and law. Center faculty work together on a range of health law issues including tort reform, patient safety, intellectual property in the health care industry, access to health care, health insurance reimbursement, international health and bioethics.
Who We Are
The center's senior co-director is Frederick Levy, M.D., associate professor at The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions. The center is also co-directed by Gregory Dolin, M.D., associate professor in the School of Law and adjunct associate professor of emergency medicine at Hopkins.
