The University of California, Los Angeles Health Ethics Center is seeking applicants for their two year Fellowship in Clinical Ethics. The successful applicant will commit to a demanding clinical schedule, providing supervised clinical ethics consultation, on call coverage, education throughout the UCLA Health system, assistance in developing policies, service as a member of three ethics committees and participate in the Center's scholarly and research projects.

The Ethics Center was founded in 2002 with the goal of strengthening the Health System's ethical commitments and improving the humanistic aspects of health care provided for patients and their families. The Center serves the needs of the UCLA Health System's four hospitals (which rank among the best in the nation). The Center enjoys robust institutional support and is a leader in developing innovative clinical ethics programs.

UCLA Health Ethics Center's primary commitment is to the promotion of excellence in patient care. Given the value-laden nature of healthcare, this excellence can only be achieved in care environments where moral insight, sensitivity and commitment flourish. Our Fellowship program exists to educate and train gifted individuals who share this vision.

Given the volume and complexity of UCLA ethics consultation (which includes transplant medicine, trauma surgery, oncology, emergency medicine, psychiatry, neurology, neonatology, pediatrics and gerontology), our close relationship with various academic departments at the university and the intensive individual mentorship and thorough assessment built into our program, we believe that it provides our fellows with an unrivaled opportunity to acquire and refine the full range of skills necessary to offer clinical ethics consultation and education on a highly competent professional basis. It is our confident expectation that those who graduate from our program will be uniquely placed, both nationally and internationally, to assume the responsibilities of leadership in clinical ethics as it emerges as a fully professional practice.

***This is a 2-year contract effective August 26, 2024 – August 25, 2026***

Pay Range: $78,800 – $175,000 Annually
