 Certificate Program in Pediatric Bioethics

NOTE: While the website says the deadline is past, the program coordinators have told us that they are still accepting applications until they reach their limit, and there are less than 10 spots remaining for the 2015-2016 cohort.

Children’s Mercy Bioethics Center in Kansas City is now accepting applications for the 2015-2016 Certificate Program in Pediatric Bioethics.  The program begins in Kansas City September 10-12, 2015.

The Children’s Mercy Center for Bioethics Certificate Program is a nine-month program taught by faculty from the Children’s Mercy Hospital and the University of Missouri – Kansas City.  It is the only ethics program in the United States that focuses exclusively on pediatrics.  The program is designed to help clinicians understand common pediatric bioethical issues.

Our first four classes included doctors, nurses, chaplains, social workers, health care administrators and policy makers from the U.S., Canada, India, Malawi, Mexico, and Norway. “We want to train teachers who can go back to their home institutions and help others become better clinicians,” says John Lantos, MD, the Director of the Children’s Mercy Bioethics Center.

The Certificate Program runs from September to May.  It begins and ends with an intensive weekend on-site in Kansas City, Mo.  For the rest of the year, students and faculty meet on-line to discuss carefully selected readings and participate in monthly webinars with internationally known speakers.  Each student works with faculty mentors to prepare a project related to pediatric practice.

The program covers a number of key topic areas in pediatric bioethics, including the role of ethics committees, practical techniques in ethics consultation, futility and moral distress, end-of-life decisions, pediatric palliative care, research ethics, biobanking and genetics, enhancement, issues in adolescent medicine, and immunization controversies.  The students read and analyze works of literature, legal cases, and articles from medical and bioethics journals.

We will consider applications and make decisions about acceptance as they are received.  A brief description of the program including tuition, travel and accommodations, and an application can be found here. We hope you will consider participating in our program in 2015-2016.  Please contact us at cmbc@cmh.edu with any questions.
