About the programme

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.
