The Health Care Ethics minor is a concentration of courses offered by disciplines within the university concerned with health care practices and the education of health care practitioners. The minor heightens students’ awareness of what constitutes ethical concerns, problems and activity from the perspectives of various kinds of health care practitioners, clients and institutions. Various views of what constitutes the ethical are examined so that students are alerted both to the conceptual dimension of ethical activity and to the existence of differing and conflicting modes of ethical reasoning.
