General Description:

The Cleveland Clinic, in partnership with Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, MetroHealth Medical Center and the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center, invites applications to the Cleveland Fellowship in Advanced Bioethics.  Fellows who graduate from this two-year, full-time program will be prepared to be leaders in Bioethics in academic institutions, health care settings, industry, and community and government agencies. 

This fellowship, modeled on a clinical residency, will take advantage of Cleveland’s major academic medical centers to provide a rich experience in clinical and research ethics.  The participant will be involved in scholarship and discussion of critical moral issues facing modern biomedicine regionally, nationally and internationally.

The fellowship encompasses comprehensive clinical ethics consultation experience, focused scholarly activities in fellows' respective areas of interest, participation in affiliated organizations' ethics education and organizational service activities, and community education opportunities.  Fellows also have the opportunity to obtain a Master's degree in Bioethics from Case Western Reserve University during this 2-year training program.

Applications will be considered from professionals with terminal post-graduate degrees (MD, JD, PhD) in medicine, philosophy, nursing, social work, religious studies, law, or other fields related to the practice of clinical and academic bioethics.  Priority will be given to applicants with strong potential for leadership in the field and who will most benefit from the rich clinical environment this program offers.

There is an annual stipend of $43,000 plus benefits.  The next fellowship class begins July 1, 2017.  Application deadline is November 1, 2016.  On-line information and application guidelines available at:
