Carla Caldwell Stanford, PhD

Carla Caldwell Stanford holds two masters’ degrees and a PhD. Now retired, she taught a medical law and bioethics course at the undergraduate college level for eight years and developed course curricula on this topic. The motivating factor for writing this textbook, for Stanford, was to simplify ethics and laws concerning the health care professional in ways that would be both appealing and easily understood by the student.
