Mark Siegler, MD founder of the clinical medical ethics field, will step down from the MacLean Center

After 35 years of creating and running the world’s leading clinical medical ethics fellowship program, Mark Siegler, MD, will step down as founding director of the MacLean Center for Clinical Medical Ethics at the University of Chicago Medicine.

Siegler will assist with the transition to his successor while he continues to practice medicine as a general internist at UChicago Medicine, as he’s done for more than 50 years. He will continue to direct the Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence.

“It is my hope that the MacLean Center, and the field of clinical medical ethics, both flourish going forward,” said Siegler, the recipient of many prestigious honors, including being appointed as UChicago’s Lindy Bergman Distinguished Service Professor of Medicine and Surgery.
