Master of Science in Biomedical Ethics (MSBE)

Why Earn an MSBE degree?

Biomedical ethics is the multi-disciplined study of the human factors – actions and their effects, in biology and medicine, as well as, the emerging advances. It is also concerned with moral discernment as it relates to medical or research policy (public or private) and practice. Bioethics are concerned with the ethical questions that arise in the relationships between clinical, research, public or organizational ethics and amongst life science, biotechnology, medicine, politics, law, theology, and philosophy.

Extensive research in the fields of ethics, compliance, organizational culture, safety, and profitability identifies a culture of integrity as the key to high-quality performance and success. It means doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Compliance fails unless it is grounded in ethics. Grounding compliance in ethics requires strategy, analysis, planning, and integration. Bringing compliance, ethics, and integrity together is the foundation of the MSBE Program providing graduates with what is required to make a difference in the discipline of their choice.

As the medical industry strives to improve healthcare delivery for patients, organization leaders will need to be prepared to develop, implement, and measure policies and practices that enhance treatment for people from different cultures according to the rights afforded them.

Candidates for the MSBE program include physicians, executives, administrators, researchers, practitioners, chaplains, educators, social workers, healthcare advocates, and others in the health delivery industry.

This program will benefit those seeking mastery in biomedical & pharmacology ethics, health care compliance, patient-care management, risk management, and in medical research as well as palliative care and end-of-life care positions providing essential assistance to patients and their families.
