Ethics & Leadership in Health Care

In the interest of educating thoughtful and responsible leaders, the Ethics & Leadership in Health Care BDP brings together resources from across campus to allow students to study ethical issues in health care policy, administration and delivery, and in medical, nursing, and other health professions. Courses explore the ethical and legal implications of controversial topics such as abortion, euthanasia, palliative care, scientific research with human subjects, technological innovation, and access to health care. Through the Connecting Experiences component of the BDP, you may work with community and professional organizations or bring your interdisciplinary expertise to faculty research.

An interdisciplinary faculty panel guides students in choosing courses and identifying research and internship experiences that allow them to connect the challenges of ethical leadership to their majors and career goals.
