Certificate of Clinical Bioethics


The nine-month Certificate of Clinical Bioethics program, offered by the Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law teaches bioethics through the lens of medicine, law, and narrative. Alongside academic coursework, the course incorporates a clinical skills component that allows 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.


There is no additional cost for Zucker School of Medicine students.
