Revised 2020 Summer Program Design
July 7 - 31, 2020
Week 1: Foundational lectures
Weeks 2 - 4: Seminars and lectures on specific topics in bioethics (below)
$1,500 Graduate Students
$1,600 Young Professionals
The program will be offered asynchronously: lectures will be loaded in advance, and each week our faculty will interact with students in online discussion forums. The program will have a strong focus on (but not limited to) the coronavirus. Readings will be provided in advance.
Seminars (Mini courses)
Syllabi and readings will be available in advance. Seminar lectures will be released on Sunday nights, and students will post responses to discussion forums by Tuesday at 5 pm EST. Seminar leaders will facilitate these online discussions. Readings will largely be limited to 20 pages/week/seminar. Students are expected to complete readings and participate in discussion forums. We recommend that students sign up for 2-4 seminars based on their workload; participants with part-time jobs or other responsibilities will prefer 2; participants taking the program “full-time” should be comfortable with 3 or 4.
Seminars will include:
Ethics of Climate Change
Bioethics & Law
Ethics of Global Health
Policy Analysis for Bioethicists
Ethics of Public Health
Ethics of Emergency Medicine
Ethics of Technology
Ethics of Psychiatry
Animal Ethics Through a One Health Perspective
Lectures will include a wide range of topics, such as:
Ethics Related to the Care of Transgender Patients
Ethics Related to the Care of People with Disabilities
