“Although I had served on ethics committees and performed consults for many years, I had not received formal ethics education. The Certificate program was an opportunity to learn about the theory, philosophy, policy and practice at a deeper and more substantive level. The classwork and the practicum informed and enriched my practice and knowledge base exponentially. The experienced faculity challenged our thinking and made a significant contribution in helping me to be more effective clinically and at the organizational level.”
