The Bioethics Program provides competency and skills-based education in clinical ethics , research ethics and bioethics policy.
The Program is designed to enhance the career and educational opportunities of those interested in such topics as end-of-life care and physician aid-in-dying, animal and human subject research, or public health and health policy issues like obesity and smoking.
Students come from a variety of backgrounds. Some are doctors, lawyers, nurses and academics currently working in healthcare, research and policy. Others are post-baccalaureate students who want to expand their understanding of bioethics and improve their prospects for admission to professional degree programs.
