Respect for the Dignity of the Person. Social Justice in Health Care Delivery.

Health Care Ethics is an integral component of an education within the Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions. The Department of Health Care Ethics offers courses within all RHCHP degree programs.

The Department of Health Care Ethics and the Center for Ethics and Leadership in the Health Professions are dedicated to a three-fold mission of education, research and service in health care ethics and health policy. The department's efforts are informed by two primary values that are at the heart of the mission of RHCHP and its Jesuit heritage:

  •   Respect for the dignity of the person in community
  •   Social justice in the allocation of resources in health care delivery
