The Clinical Ethics Fellowship provides intensive training in clinical ethics consultation in a variety of health care settings and diverse patient populations, including critical care, pediatrics, and OBGYN. The Fellow will learn an approach to ethics consultation that is informed by the humanities. The Fellow will conduct bioethics and health humanities research in line with their interests and be afforded the opportunity to teach health students and professionals and graduate students. The Fellow will increase the points of contact between the Clinical Ethics Consultation Service and patients, families, faculty, and staff at our Galveston and other campuses. The Fellowship program is tailored to meet the strengths and needs of each fellow, and involves a one-year, full-time commitment with an option to extend the fellowship an additional year at the program director’s discretion.
