The UW School of Medicine, Department of Bioethics & Humanities, offers an online program to provide advanced training in healthcare ethics. ATHE students gain foundational knowledge and skills to broaden their competency in patient cases, clinical ethics, and ethics consultation. The program consists of three online courses in theory, law, and methods (for 18 Continuing Medical Education credits) and one week-long, in-person Summer Seminar in Healthcare Ethics (approximately 29 CME credits). Students are welcome to take individual courses for unofficial transcripts. The ATHE program does not result in UW transcripted credits.
