American Society of Law, Medicine and Ethics (ASLME) is a nonprofit educational organization. It was founded in 1911.
ASLME provides high-quality scholarship, debate, and critical thought for professionals at the intersection of law, medicine, and ethics.
The members of ASLME are equipped to examine big health questions with far-reaching social ramifications such as: genetic testing and research, medical record privacy, end-of-life decisions, and the dynamics of informed consent. ASLME acquired supreme strength from their multidisciplinary focus. ASLME creates a dynamic forum to exchange ideas from a wide range of perspectives to: protect public health; reduce racial, ethnic, and economic health disparities; promote patient safety and quality of care; and facilitate dialogue on emerging biomedical science and research.
ASLME has three types of memberships such as: Doctoral (for those with an MD, JD, LLB, LLM, PhD, DNSc, MBA, DO or other equivalent professional position); Non-Doctoral; and Student (for a full time student without a doctoral level degree). ASLME members can avail certain benefits such as:
