Medical Student Education

The Center also provides bioethics education for medical students, clinicians and allied health professionals under arrangements with teaching institutions.

In recent decades, we have played significant roles in bioethics education at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) and Kansas City University.

Kansas City University

At Kansas City University, Center staff coordinated the medical ethics curriculum, including collaborating in founding its Department of Bioethics and M.A. in Bioethics degree program in 2007. Center staff serve as adjunct professors in KCU’s bioethics program, and the Center continues to mentor dual degree (D.O. and M.A. in Bioethics) students in clinical bioethics during 4th year clinical rotations.

University of Kansas Medical Center

At the University of Kansas Medical Center, the Center has been involved in ethics leadership, education and consultation for more than three decades. Currently, these services include teaching in the Department of History and Philosophy, co-directing the Clendening Summer Fellowship and research electives for medical students, serving as faculty mentor and principal investigator for student research projects, providing ethics education for physician residency and fellowship programs, co-chairing the Hospital Ethics Committee, and directing the hospital’s Ethics Consultation Service.
