About Rush University

The Master of Arts in Health Care Ethics combines the Internet courses of the Certificate of Graduate Study in Health Care Ethics with courses in medical sociology, health economics, health care organizations and health law. This provides students with a more comprehensive experience in the context of ethics in the health care environment. Regular rounding and consultation in health care ethics are significant parts of the experience. The program is designed for those who want to complement their professional training (chaplains, lawyers, nurses, administrators and physicians) with work in ethics. The program currently requires some time in residence, but may be completed on a part-time basis.

Our program goals:

  • Provide ethical analysis of cases
  • Provide ethical commentary during rounds and conferences
  • Recommend ethically appropriate clinical or administrative interventions
  • Provide health care ethics education
  • Develop or devise policies related to health care ethics
  • Describe the impact of values and the influence of social/environmental contexts on delivery of health care
  • Provide informed public comment about current health care issues
  • Identify and pursue issues that require formal research
