What will I learn?

The clinical ethics post-baccalaureate certificate will offer a graduate level educational opportunity for practicing professionals including physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and others. Students will engage in classwork and practical experience geared toward mastery of the knowledge and skills needed for work in clinical ethics, including participation on ethics committees, clinical ethics consultation services, institutional and regional clinical ethics policy bodies, such as organ allocation committees or brain death committees, support for institutional staff development programs in their professional fields, or simply being better prepared to meet the ethical challenges that arise in their work. The curriculum will fulfill the health care ethics core competencies promulgated by the American Society for Bioethics and Humanities.
