Tarris Rosell joined the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine in 2009 as a part-time clinical professor for Ethics. He lectures at KUMC and beyond on many topics within the field of biomedical ethics. Dr. Rosell provides ethics consultation for the University of Kansas Health System, where he co-chairs the Hospital Ethics Committee and leads the ethics consultation service.

Dr. Rosell also serves as Ethics faculty at monthly ethics case discussion groups with medical students, residents, and fellows. Research interests include clinical bioethics, health and healthcare disparities, and the intersections of medicine and religion.

Service to the wider community has included facilitation of multi-disciplinary ethics rounds in other local institutions, membership on a faith based health system bioethics committee and IRB, membership on the Clinical Ethics Consultation Affairs Committee of the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities, and chairing the 2016 ASBH Annual Meeting Program Committee. Dr. Rosell currently serves as chair of the Charitable Care Committee of the Kansas City Medical Society Foundation Board, overseeing a metro wide "Project Access" type nonprofit organization for uninsured patients and pro bono providers, for which he was a co-founder in 2007. He is a ceramics artist, also (Amani Lamps & Pots by Tarris), directing all pottery proceeds to international service projects of former students.

  Dr. Rosell holds academic and professional appointments as the Rosemary Flanigan Chair at the Center for Practical Bioethics, and Professor of Pastoral Theology (Ethics & Ministry Praxis) at Central Baptist Theological Seminary. He is Chair of the Department of Bioethics at Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, providing leadership for the Masters in Bioethics degree program.
