Health Ethics, PhD

The modern era of medicine has come about because of scientific and technological progress. Health Ethics is an essential counter balance to the scientific nature of health care and reflects on the moral decisions that are required by health practitioners. It emphasises the human values of justice, fairness and empathy that contributes to a positive patient experience. CEPHS embraces the African culturic ethic of Ubunta by being person- and people centred. CEPHS is committed to the development of academic capacity and producing scholarly input that is responsive to South African and international trends as well as regulatory requirements. It provides a synergistic platform for research into ethics for both its associates and students.
