Certificate in Clinical Bioethics
Deadline to Apply is Friday August 4th, 2017.
The nine-month program teaches bioethics through the lens of medicine, law and narrative. Alongside academic coursework, the course incorporates a clinical skills component that will allow course participants to learn – and be assessed in - clinical competencies in preparation for real-life consultations in medical settings. Upon completion of the program participants will have the critical tools needed to analyze and assess ethics cases, participate in ethics consultations and serve on hospital ethics committees. Students who successfully complete the program will receive a Certificate in Clinical Bioethics.

Our students include physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers, clergy, hospital administrators, lawyers, judges, law and medical students, and other professionals who would benefit from a foundation in clinical bioethics.
