Recent advances in science and technology make biomedical ethics a continuing matter of concern for students, health professionals and laypersons alike. This course offers an opportunity to investigate general and specific ethical questions and ethical decision making from both a personal and organizational perspective, including topics such as the right to health care, research with human subjects, reproductive issues, genetics, professional and student roles and responsibilities, and end-of-life issues. Such investigation requires exposure to the issues and to various attempts to address and resolve them. The course requires participation in group discussions as well as independent critical writing.
