Our History

The Center for Health Policy & Ethics (CHPE) was established in the Health Sciences to be an academic center of excellence in scholarship and teaching. The Center's existence is in part made possible through an endowment from the Health Future Foundation.

A goal was established that the Center become pre-eminent in the study of ethical issues in health care and health policy while simultaneously supporting and fostering excellence in teaching ethics to students in Creighton's four health professions schools: School of Medicine, School of Nursing, School of Dentistry, School of Pharmacy and Health Professions.
