Cleveland Clinic’s Clinical Ethics Immersion Program (CLEIP)

Cleveland, Ohio, United States
(216) 444-8720

Cleveland Clinic’s Clinical Ethics Immersion Program (CLEIP) is a rigorous immersion learning experience with a three-day preparatory intensive course followed by a two- or three-week ethics consultation immersion experience. CLEIP participants will gain an appreciation of the full spectrum of a clinical ethics program through the combined intensive classroom learning and ethics consultation immersion experiences.

The program will begin with the classroom intensive at Cleveland Clinic on March 16-18, 2018 taught by Cleveland Clinic faculty. During the intensive, participants will come together to learn classical methods of ethics consultation as well as new and emerging approaches in clinical ethics. The intensive will offer a combination of seminars and workshops to enable participants to apply their knowledge and practice their ethics consultation skills in a supportive learning environment. The small class size (10-participant limit annually) contributes to the individualized, supportive environment and fosters long-term professional relationships among participants.

The one-on-one immersion component of the course will be tailored to the individual participant’s learning needs, and will include a focused study of a specialty within clinical ethics. Participants will have the opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge and skills in the clinical setting on an ethics consultation service that conducts more than 600 consultations annually. They will do so under the guidance and expertise of the Bioethics faculty of Cleveland Clinic.

Participants will benefit from the Bioethics Department’s 30-year history of innovation and integration into the core fabric of one of the nation’s best hospital systems. Cleveland Clinic’s health care delivery model serves as an example of sustainability in this era of healthcare reform; the employed-physician model of the main campus and the combined employed and private-practice model of the system’s community hospitals provide participants with a full spectrum of institutional cultures, including a faith-based hospital, in which clinical ethics consultants practice.
