Willard P. Green, Ph.D. received a Master's of Divinity from Yale University and a doctoral degree in Philosophy from Temple University. He served as minister of a Presbyterian Church for three years prior to returning to graduate school. He began teaching in 1980 at Hahnemann University where he received a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine and in what became the School of Health Professions. He was Dean of the School of Health Professions for nine years, returning to full time teaching in 2002.
The courses he developed and teach include Introduction & Advanced Health Care Ethics, Religion & Health Care, Vulnerable Populations and Health Care, Holism and Health Care, Ethics in Health Care Administration and Spirituality and Healing.
His research focuses on various issues within the field of medical ethics such as: the role of patient autonomy in the patient-health professional relationship and the interface with medical paternalism; the barriers to informed consent and strategies to overcome them; and the importance of confidentiality in the health professional-patient relationship, and the relationship between spirituality and healing.
