To improve the lives of children and their families by enhancing ethical deliberation in pediatric healthcare and research.
We are committed to training clinicians for academic careers in bioethics to ensure that the next generation of scholars, teachers and consultants are able engage in pediatric bioethics issues, and to encourage medical students and residents to consider careers in bioethics.
The Clinical Bioethics Fellowship Program is a two-year program that trains physicians in bioethics with an emphasis on pediatrics issues in the clinical and research arenas. The goal of the fellowship is to prepare fellows for academic careers with an emphasis on scholarship in pediatric bioethics. Fellows will conduct an independent research project, participate in clinical consultations and will be expected to enroll in a master's program.
The program is sponsored by the Treuman Katz Center for Pediatric Bioethics at Seattle Children’s, and the Division of Bioethics in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine. Fellows will benefit from collaborations with the University of Washington Department of Bioethics and Humanities, School of Medicine and School of Public Health.
