Program Description:

Headlines about health care reform and disparities in the availability and quality of health care have led to an increased awareness of health  care ethics issues. The online Master's in Health Care Ethics from Creighton University educates students about the complex issues that  make up bioethics, a field that enjoys few black-and-white answers.  
Program outcomes include:  

  • An increased familiarity with the role of ethics in health care
  • An in-depth understanding of the various issues and factors involved in  this field
  • Enhanced ability to explain, justify, analyze and write about ethical  decisions in health

Coursework reflects Creighton's Jesuit, Catholic values by examining  quality of life and survival in vulnerable populations that may receive  lower levels of care as a result of socioeconomic status, race, and  ethnicity, among other factors.  With a master's degree in Health Care Ethics, students will be able to contribute to discussions and policy making on ethics in the health care  setting and educate their peers. It is an ideal degree for those who work in health care or related fields and want to become more effective  in their current roles, such as physicians, nurses, hospital  administrators, public health managers and chaplains.
