Ethics and Policy Healthcare Requirement List

BME students must complete at least 3 credits (earning a C- or better) addressing ethical and policy issues in healthcare and medicine. It is important that our students have an awareness of societal, regulatory, policy, and ethical considerations that influence healthcare and medicine. Thus, we require our students to take at least one course that advances their knowledge in this area.
