About Us

The MCEG has been designed to be a hub of clinical ethics expertise, and a consultation service for individual clinicians and health organisations and services that do not have their own embedded clinical ethicists.

The Melbourne Clinical Ethics Group (MCEG) comprises three experienced clinical ethicists who have joint positions at Melbourne University and major tertiary public hospitals in Melbourne. They are also co-authors of the book, When Doctors and Parents Disagree (The Federation Press, 2016).
