About Lauren B Solberg

Professor Solberg is the Director of the Program in Bioethics, Law and Medical Professionalism. She teaches medical students, graduate and undergraduate students, and other learners about issues in clinical and research ethics. Professor Solberg leads the Medical Ethics and Law track in the MD program that enables students to engage in a more in-depth study of bioethics and law, and she directs the Clinical Ethics, Law, and Professionalism thread in the MD curriculum. Professor Solberg conducts much of her research on bioethics education, and she has received funding from the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation to develop, implement, and evaluate these education programs. She has also written and presented extensively about the ethical and regulatory considerations when using social media to conduct research.

Professor Solberg is the co-chair of the university’s Professional Curriculum Committee, which consider all requests for changes in professional curricula, and for the addition of new professional courses of instruction in any of the colleges, divisions, and schools of the University.
