Professor Amnon Carmi has developed and promoted the field of health law, medical ethics and bioethics for over fifty years. His academic activity embraced three layers: research, administration, and teaching. As part of his research, he has written and edited dozens of books, and founded and edited the International journal for Medicine and Law. As part of the administration he led and served for many years as President of the World Association for Medical Law. As part of his teaching, he has lectured at many universities on the five continents. The theme and vision of bioethics education grew and developed by Prof. Carmi during teaching in medical schools. In international studies conducted by him, he has noticed the failure of the accepted teaching method of medical ethics. Prof. Carmi devised a revolutionary teaching method of bioethics, and formulated it with the assistance of over a hundred senior educators from around the world.
In 2001 UNESCO adopted this method, established the UNESCO Chair headed by Prof. Carmi, and authorized it to promote the method and disseminate it in academic institutions around the world.
Towards the third decade, Prof. Carmi initiated the establishment and operation of an International Forum of Teachers that includes more than 1,200 educators, encouraged the establishment of over twenty professional departments, conceived and implemented the "World Bioethics Day" project, initiated and promoted the teaching of bioethics for youth and children and promoted the Chair's engagement with the World Medical Association and additional international health organizations.
