The graduate certificate in Hippocratic Healthcare Ethics is designed with various groups of students in mind, including those who are presently—or aspire to be—physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, hospital chaplains, and other healthcare professionals and administrators, as well as those involved in medical education. The certificate is well-suited for those with professional or other responsibilities who desire a flexible 21-semester hour certificate grounded in the Hippocratic practice of healthcare and a firm commitment to a biblical worldview.
Additionally, this certificate is stackable as part of the MA/BE allowing all 21 credit hours to be included as part of the full master’s degree. By enrolling in online courses, remote learning, mentored and independent study work, and as few as one week-long courses on campus, the certificate can be completed without relocating near the Bannockburn, Illinois campus. Alternatively, nearly all courses can be completed as part of an on-campus option.
Should you choose to further your education in the MA in Bioethics program, the courses you take for this certificate will be counted toward your degree.
