Students pursuing the Master of Arts (M.A.) in Medical Ethics and Humanities from Northeast Ohio Medical University may choose one of two tracks: medical ethics with an emphasis on clinical ethics, or the medical humanities.


Students begin the Master of Arts in Medical Ethics and Humanities Program from Northeast Ohio Medical University by building a foundation in the medical humanities with theoretical perspectives in ethics. This foundation gives students the tools to critically examine issues and values relevant to health care delivery, research, and the health care organization, as well as the ability to self-reflect, addressing biases and recognizing different viewpoints. 


As medical science and technology continue to advance, there is an increasing concern over professional and ethical responsibilities in providing optimal care to patients and their families, and addressing issues among colleagues and institutions including, but not limited to: effective utilization of scarce or limited resources, disclosure of conflicts of interest, balancing healthcare delivery with clinical research, and developing therapeutic relationships in light of controversial public health policies and laws.
