Title: Clinical and Organizational Rotations in Ethics (CORE). The acronym helps to focus on the crucial core significance of the Rotations in our Degree Programs. The clinical component is so inter-woven with the organizational component in health care that the Rotations focus upon the dynamic relationship between clinical, organizational, and professional ethics.
Rationale. The CORE provides HCE degree students with an experience-based curriculum to learn in a supervised, step-by-step manner the scholarly knowledge and professionals skills for providing ethics services in health care. Moreover, the curriculum focuses upon providing ethics leadership to integrate clinical, organizational, and professional ethics across the health care organization.
Step-by-step approach. Each rotation is designed to build on one another in a practical and supervised manner, each subsequent rotation requiring the previous rotations. The first component is required for the master’s degree. All four components are required for the doctoral degree. Each rotation has distinctive learning objectives. Significant time is dedicated in each Rotation to the student’s critical reflection to enhance the enterprise of experiential learning in a meaningful and personal manner. And each Rotation seeks to engage the integration of the clinical and organizational components of contemporary health care delivery.
Time span. Typically, each Rotation extends for 15 weeks over a semester, lasting 150 hours, divided differently among the varying Rotations.
