2016-2017 Ethics Fellowship Applications Open

Applications are available for the 2016-2017 Clinical Ethics Fellowship sponsored by the Charles Warren Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics.  The application deadline is April 29, 2016.

This nine-month, part time fellowship focuses on training health care professionals in clinical ethics, including ethics consultation and ethics research.  Graduates will become capable members of the ethics community, resources for their colleagues facing ethical challenges in patient care, and have the potential to become leaders in the field of medical ethics.

The target audience for the fellowship includes physicians, nurses, chaplains, and social workers.  Other members of the community (e.g. attorneys or members of administrative staffs) may also apply. 

Application to the fellowship is competitive. The application process includes submission of a written application (which includes several brief narrative essays), a letter of support from the applicant’s immediate supervisor, one letter of recommendation, and interviews with Fairbanks Center staff.
