Our Vision

The Center for Ethics and Leadership in the Health Professions envisions a health care system within which dedicated professionals are actively engaged in the moral and practical challenges of the health care enterprise of today, while promoting a just, equitable, and effective system for tomorrow.  Within this vision, health care professionals engage the ethical issues involved with health care policy as well as the daily ethical challenges found in clinical and organizational settings.  These health professionals assume responsibility as moral agents; strive to resolve ethical dilemmas through ongoing respectful and interdisciplinary dialogue;  and take leadership roles in their advocacy for patients, community, colleagues, and institutions.

Our Mission

To foster moral awareness and ethical action in health care practice and leadership

The mission is accomplished, in partnership with the Regis University's Department of Health Care Ethics, through teaching, scholarship and community outreach. The Center for Ethics and Leadership in the Health Professions provides services to professionals from the Rocky Mountain region’s health care community and contributes to the larger national and international dialogue on health care through scholarship and professional activities. Faculty in the Department of Healthcare Ethics and Fellows of the Center are knowledgeable in clinical and organizational ethics, and health care public policy, with special attention to the Catholic moral and social justice traditions.

Our Values

Drawing on the larger mission and values of the Rueckert-Hartman College for Health Professions and the Catholic Jesuit heritage of Regis University, the Center for Ethics and Leadership in the Health Professions is dedicated to promoting deep individual reflection and an informed civil discourse based on the following core values:

  1. Respect for the life and dignity of the human person
  2. Intellectual rigor and humility in the face of complex issues
  3. Responsibility of the individual to act with an informed conscience
  4. Commitment to the common good, with particular care for those who are poor and marginalized.

Guided by these core values, the Center for Ethics and Leadership in the Health Professions provides outreach to the Rocky Mountain health care community in the form of consultative services, education, research, and other collaborative activities. With a focus on the future, the Center is deeply committed to scholarship that promotes the moral reflection and leadership needed to create health care systems that are able to meet the dilemmas of a diverse society, scarce resources, emerging technologies, and mounting global health challenges.
