About this Course
Join other leaders who will be part of our newest virtual course, Catholic Ethics for Health Care Leaders. This course is designed for mission leaders, chaplains/spiritual care leaders, clinicians, social workers and sponsors who want to deepen their understanding of Catholic health care ethics.

In this course, you'll learn about:

  • Ethics and the Catholic Way
  • The Church's teaching on conscience
  • Catholic Social Teaching
  • Culture of Life
  • Justice, equity, and equality
  • End-of-life care

Once you've completed the course, you will have a deeper understanding of Catholic health care ethics, when to apply your learnings, and when to contact an ethicist.

The online course will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 6 and will be held seven consecutive Tuesdays from 1 to 3 p.m. through Oct. 18.

Registration for this program is limited so secure your spot today!

Prior to the start of the course, you will receive important access and program information, and the personalized link to the e-book that will be used, Medical Ethics: Sources of Catholic Teachings.
