Please join The Bioethics Program of Clarkson University’s Lewis School of Health Sciences as we mark 20 years of bioethics education. Our pioneering hybrid online-onsite program eliminates barriers that once prevented working healthcare professionals from expanding their expertise in clinical and research ethics, as well as public policy.
Our virtual lecture series celebrates the program’s history and future. The monthly, free public panel discussions will run through February 2022. The first panel focused on the challenges of bringing clinical ethics education online.
The joint program with the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai began with a clinical focus and evolved to offer specializations in research ethics and public policy. Through a series of NIH Fogarty International Center grants it also expanded its reach to train bioethicists in the Caribbean, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
Graduates of our program are practitioners who help address ethical questions within the healthcare system that span research, public health and clinical work and can go beyond the healthcare industry into academia, policymaking and community engagement.
