Here is another announcement for you regarding a fellowship opportunity in clinical, organizational, and research ethics (2022-24) offered by the Centre for Clinical Ethics (CCE) at Unity Health Toronto and the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the University of Toronto—in collaboration with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences (OSCMHS), Sinai Health (SH), and University Health Network (UHN). Committed to the mission and values of Unity Health Toronto, the CCE’s goal is to enable members of the healthcare community to identify and resolve ethical issues that arise in the clinical setting. The CCE’s core activities include case consultation, education, policy development, research ethics, and academic research.
In addition to its work within Unity Health Toronto, the CCE also provides ethics services to a range of hospitals and health systems across Ontario: Lakeridge Health, Scarborough Health Network, St. Joseph’s Health System-Hamilton, Toronto Grace Health Centre, Runnymede Healthcare Centre, and Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care.
The purpose of the fellowship program is to train individuals to be competent practicing healthcare ethicists across diverse healthcare environments. Fellows who complete the program will be equipped to work in both faith-based and non-faith-based healthcare settings and will possess the knowledge, skills, and competencies required to work in a Catholic healthcare setting.
For the first time, the CCE is planning for a two-year cycle with a progression to a senior fellowship in the second year. They also now have an academic home for their program at the University of Toronto (in the Department of Family and Community Medicine) and several new affiliations such as with CAMH, Ontario Shores, Sinai Health and UHN, allowing for increased exposure to multiple health systems and ethics teams.
