If you are seeking an abbreviated study in bioethics but one that is still richly textured, our Certificate Program in Bioethics and Medical Humanities may be an option to consider.
Since 1995, this program has trained reflective professionals and graduate students with backgrounds in health care, law, chaplaincy, social work, basic-science research, and hospital and research administration.
The Certificate program enrolls a diverse group of students from the tri-state area each year, providing personal enrichment and the tools needed to better understand the nuances of policy and regulation.
Our students include professionals and students in health care, law, chaplaincy, social work, basic-science research, and hospital and research administration. Many of these alumni chair or serve on hospital ethics committees, conduct bioethics consultation services, sit on institutional review boards, administer nursing homes, hold positions in state health care agencies, and write and lecture on bioethical issues.
Our expanding circle of alumni provide participants with strong networking resources and opportunities to observe bioethics in its varied settings. We also actively encourage and admit participants who are not directly involved in health care or scientific research, but whose work is informed by the aspirations and challenges of shaping science and medicine with humane treatment in mind.
