This course is particularly well suited for health care professionals and scientists who face complex ethical issues in their working lives. It is also valuable for those involved in the development of public policy and law regarding these issues, as well as for anyone who simply wishes to explore issues of public concern in greater depth. The course provides a structured program of units in ethical theory, applied ethics, healthcare ethics, research ethics, and related policy issues. It is designed in ways to suit students with little or no prior educational background in ethics or philosophy, but the course is also suitable for philosophy graduates with an interest in further study of bioethics. Teaching in the course is designed to improve students' analytical skills, encourage them to think critically about the ethical issues considered, and to develop independent and well-informed views about the ethical and philosophical questions addressed in the course.
