Abstract

College health services provide a crucial resource for campus communities in the United States, substantially affecting student health, safety, and wellbeing. The impact and quality of campus clinical services impact student life through varied approaches to the delivery of services, health innovations, and business models. The role that campus health services plays in dealing with risk mitigation is essential: well-established public health principles of disease prevention, health promotion, and health education are sustained and advanced by campus clinical health services. Despite the widely recognized importance of college health services, there is very little literature on the contribution of ethics related to them, especially from the perspective of professional responsibilities. This dissertation seeks to present an approach to Professional Ethics for College Health Services (CHS) through the relevance of prominent principles in healthcare ethics as a foundation for the development of an approach.
