Our Values

The core values and principles that will guide the program in the fulfillment of this mission are:

  1. Respect for the diversity of values of patients, residents, students, staff, and faculty.
  2. Integration of bioethical and humanism-based principles in all educational efforts at the Tulane University, and to contribute to scholarly research in medical ethics and humanities pedagogical research.
  3. Fostering collaborative relationships toward professionalism through medical ethics, humanities, and humanism education.

The Program in Medical Ethics and Human Values anticipates a future Professorship or Visiting Professorship program to permit nurturing of junior or mid-career faculty in collaboration with scholars and educators at Tulane School of Medicine. Types of activities in which he/she may engage in will include: advancing the efforts of Tulane’s educational mission, conducting empirical educational research; writing target articles for scholarly journals such as Academic Medicine; and helping to plan and participate in a major course, or educational conference here at Tulane University.
