The Charles Warren Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics at Indiana University Health offers a nine-month, part time fellowship aimed at training health care professionals in clinical ethics, including didactic and interactive seminars, ethics consultation experience, and a scholarly project. Graduates become capable members of the ethics community, serve as a resource for colleagues facing ethical challenges in patient care, and have the potential to grow into leaders in the field of medical ethics.
The Fairbanks Center for Medical Ethics will grant certificates of completion to fellows successfully completing the nine-month fellowship. Fellows will be evaluated on participation in seminars and meetings, performance in supervised ethics consultations, and completion of a scholarly project.
