Dr. Campelia joined the Department of Bioethics & Humanities at the University of Washington School of Medicine as an Assistant Professor in October 2016. She is also an Ethics Consultant for UW Medicine’s Ethics Consultation Service. She received her PhD in Philosophy at the Graduate Center, CUNY, under the supervision of Virginia Held. Her philosophical research concerns virtue ethics, care ethics, and feminist epistemology. Her work in bioethics extends this theoretical work to medical care, where much of her work lies at the intersection of virtue ethics and care ethics. Specifically, her writing and practice focuses on establishing structures to enable and encourage empathy, and facilitating greater recognition of the relational constitution of patient identity and decisional processes.
