For four decades, The Journal of Medicine and Philosophy has been the flagship scholarly journal in bioethics and the philosophy of medicine.

Significant attention has been given to bioethics and foundational issues in health care policy in North and South America, Europe, and Asia. The journal’s concerns range from clinical bioethics and health care policy, to studies in the philosophy of medicine such as explorations of the nature of concepts of health and disease, as well as the character of medical explanation.
