Biomedical Ethics | BTHX 5325
Sept. 7-Dec. 15
This course, delivered entirely online, examines issues in bioethics spanning clinical ethics, public health ethics, and research ethics. The course also introduces conceptual frameworks and methods that can be used to analyze these issues. To fully understand and evaluate these complex issues, it is critical that we consider them from a diversity of perspectives. Hence, we will spend most of our time in class discussion, openly and respectfully listening to and engaging with each other in interdisciplinary/interprofessional conversation. Some of these discussions will be held live during class meeting times using web conferencing technology. Others will be on discussion boards on the course website, to allow students to tailor their participation to their own schedules to some extent. *Course has been approved for Interprofessional Education (IPE) credit for health professions students.
