Center for Healthcare Ethics

Healthcare ethics is an interdisciplinary field in a globalized context that engages clinical, organizational, professional, and research issues related to medicine, science, law, policy, social science, and the humanities.

The Center for Healthcare Ethics, part of the McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts at Duquesne University, has offered degree programs in healthcare ethics since 1993, and beginning with the fall 2018 semester, will be offering degree programs in Catholic Healthcare Ethics.

The Healthcare Ethics academic program trains scholars and professionals in the field of healthcare ethics. In addition to academic courses, there are clinical ethics rotations and internships that provide Mentored Apprenticeships in Ethics Consultation supervised by our faculty. It also sponsors lecture series, networks, and affiliations that bring together thought-leaders in healthcare ethics to work internationally on issues of importance.
