Working at a Catholic health system, you can’t avoid the theological dimension of your work.  And, you certainly can't dismiss ethical challenges by saying that they are someone else's job.  Shouldn't a graduate program provide you the tools to address both? 

Our collaborative graduate degree programs offer you the knowledge and skills to deepen the theological dimension and ethical challenges of your work... in the clinic and the board room. 



Students in either the Bioethics or Health Care Mission Leadership graduate program can utilize courses in the complementary program to round out their skill set, whether that be in the clinical ethics simulation labs at the Stritch School of Medicine or in theological studies.  And, specially developed offerings team taught by faculty from both programs enrich the learning experience beyond compare.

Our innovative online environment supports practical education and provides valuable engagement and networking among peers and experts in the field of Catholic health care.
