This module typically meets every Tuesday during the spring months of February and March from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM plus two (2) Saturday class sessions which can be from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM.

This module focuses on basic ethical issues in health care: theoretical and applied ethics; values-based decision making, confidentiality and privacy, informed consent, health care access, culture and medicine, and beliefs and practices related to death and dying.

Like Module I, this module typically meets every other Tuesday during the Fall months of September, October and November from 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM plus two (2) Saturday class sessions which can be from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM.
