Minor in Health Care Ethics Update

CHCE Minor

This spring marked the launch of the new undergraduate minor in health care ethics. As a part of the minor, the Center offered six new undergraduate courses, including three "foundations" courses in clinical ethics (catholic health care ethics and public health ethics) and three upper-level courses on various topics in bioethics.

In addition to matriculating 40 students into the health care ethics minor (far surpassing the Center's goal of enrolling 25 students in the first year), the program graduated its first two students with the minor, both of which worked hard to complete the required coursework in one semester.

Feedback on the courses and the minor has been overwhelmingly positive. Remarking on the health care ethics courses required for the minor, newly graduated Abigail Epstein comments that they "opened me up to new elements of the health care field that I think will greatly benefit my career as a health care administrator. Each reading and discussion from the various HCE courses have helped me grow and enriched my life."

Rising senior and theology major Scott Hessel states that "being a Health Care Ethics minor is important to me because it helps me to take a critical look at the increasingly complex world of health care and evaluate procedures to ensure they respect the dignity and value of each individual patient."

The minor is offering two foundations courses over the summer and will again offer six courses in the fall semester, including "Ethics in Clinical Medicine", "Law and Bioethics" and "Ethics and Geriatric Care."
