CHS - 605 Introduction to Ethics in Healthcare


This interprofessional course will introduce students to the foundational theories and common language of health care ethics. Through review of major ethical issues in health care, students will explore the distinction between law and ethics, the development of professionalism in health care, the clinician-patient relationship, the conceptual and practical challenges of informed consent, and the challenges of distributive and social justice for health policy and clinical practice. This course is highly interactive and divided equally between the classroom and the internet. The classroom portion of the course is a 50 minute weekly lecture covering the assigned readings and objectives, followed by a 50 minute case-based discussion section. The online portion of the course is a webinar and includes weekly lesson activities and related online discussion. The readings for each week are available through the course website and will bridge the classroom and online contents of the course. The course is open to students in the College of Health Sciences.
