Doctorate of Professional Studies

Concentrate on Health Ethics and Policy or Clinical Ethics


Two concentrations are offered in the Doctorate of Professional Studies in Bioethics. Health Ethics and Policy and Clinical Ethics are both designed for working, health care professionals who possess a master’s degree in bioethics, or equivalent, and who seek advanced education and training. These degrees aim to provide trainees with knowledge and practical skills in preparation for professional leadership roles in health ethics and policy or clinical ethics.

The Doctorate of Professional Studies is not akin to a traditional PhD in bioethics, which primarily prepares students for a career in an academic setting. Our doctoral programs, provide professional training for individuals interested in the clinical applications of healthcare ethics.
