Abstract

In this article the process of institutionalization of bioethics in Venezuela is described and analyzed, in terms both of its organization, composition and activities and the level of public management in which it has been institutionalized. The method employed is documental, structured in a chronological-descriptive way, which allowed establishing relations, differences, stages, positions and current state of knowledge in the field of study. It was concluded that such process has not been articulated with a program for training capacities, both for research field and management.
