As a current or future healthcare professional, you’ve probably studied a lot of hard science. But healthcare involves hard decisions, too, and premedical and professional health programs don’t always equip practitioners with the frameworks they need to make informed ethical judgements.

With D’Youville College, you can empower yourself with an ethical decision-making skill set through convenient online study. Our online Medical Ethics Certificate challenges you to consider ongoing and emerging ethical problems in healthcare practice. It includes three courses that can have a tremendous impact on your professional career and on the service you provide to patients through your work.

The Medical Ethics Certificate program includes a seminar in advanced bioethics guided by distinguished faculty with healthcare industry experience. You can complete this program in as few as three months while continuing to work full time.

YOU WILL:

  • Improve your ability to serve patients, clients, and healthcare institutions through rigorous exploration of ethical, legal, and moral issues in healthcare.
  • Develop your ethical judgement and sensitivity and apply them to real-world scenarios in healthcare practice.
  • Gain insight into new ethical issues posed by advances in life sciences, including issues around cloning, genetic therapy, and more.

Designed for working professionals in clinical, research, and support roles in healthcare.
