Institutional Membership (May 1 to April 30)

Join other healthcare organizations in Northwestern Ontario in becoming an institutional member of the Centre.  Our program provides opportunities for continuing professional education and for the development of institutional policies.  Staff may attend and participate by video conference in the monthly presentations, "Encounters in Bioethics," and we offer on-site programs that can be delivered directly to member institutions.  A number of hospitals in the region find these workshops, lectures and consultations helpful in starting and supporting the operation of institutional Ethics Committees and Research Ethics Boards as well as meeting the accreditation requirements.
