Preparing future Ethics & Mission Leaders
in Catholic Healthcare

Healthcare institutions need professionals who can analyze ethics cases and policies, facilitate ethical decision-making and effectively teach colleagues and students. To meet these needs we offer online doctorate and master of arts degrees and graduate certificate programs in healthcare mission leadership and bioethics. 

The Healthcare Mission Leadership interdisciplinary online graduate program is offered collaboratively by Loyola’s Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics & Healthcare Leadership at the Stritch School of Medicine, the Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, the Institute of Pastoral Studies and the Department of Theology to deepen the theological component of our interdisciplinary programs.

Our innovative online environment supports practical education providing valuable engagement and networking among peers and experts in the fields of bioethics and healthcare mission leadership.

For over 20 years, Loyola is the established leader in offering online graduate education. Our interdisciplinary 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 boardroom. 



Loyola University Chicago is a proud member of the Catholic Health Association (CHA).  As a member, the Neiswanger Institute for Bioethics & Healthcare Leadership will draw on its principles of ministry, ethics, spiritual leadership, faith-based social engagement, and service, to join in raising a collective passionate voice for compassionate care in America.
