The Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics is a biannual publication of the Yale Schools of Law, Medicine, Epidemiology and Public Health, and Nursing. The Journal strives to provide a forum for interdisciplinary discussion on topics in health policy, health law, and biomedical ethics. It targets a broad and diverse readership of academicians, professionals, and students in medicine, law, and public health, as well as policy makers and legislators in health care.
Submissions to the Journal are peer-reviewed by our distinguished Advisory Board consisting of nationally recognized experts in a variety of health-related disciplines. More than 50 student members from Yale's graduate and professional schools edit the Journal and oversee its production.
The inaugural issue of the Yale Journal of Health Policy, Law, and Ethics was based on a symposium that was held at the Yale Law School on February 9th and 10th, 2001.
