Registration for the 2019 IBC is now closed, as our program is at capacity. Please join us for IBC44 in 2020.

Each summer, a diverse cohort of doctors, nurses, dentists, policy-makers, hospital chaplains, lawyers, IRB panelists, and others come together on Georgetown’s historic campus to grapple with some of the most profound moral issues they confront in their work, guided by internationally-renowned bioethics scholars from the KIE and beyond.

The course revolves around plenary lectures on key principles of bioethics, followed by small group discussions led by an expert facilitator. This year’s IBC format will include a mix of succinct content lectures and small group facilitated discussions, all led by our esteemed faculty.

Find out for yourself why repeat participants and new attendees alike laud the IBC as “a life-changing experience,” “the best conference I have ever attended,” and “the ‘Academy Awards’ of bioethics.”
