The “Foundations” component runs from June 1st - 9th and consists of an introduction to ethical theory along with a review of bioethical principles, theories, terms, and history, and concludes with a site visit to The Hastings Center in NY. The remainder of the program covers ethical issues pertaining to a broad range of topics including medicine, law, religion, public health, disability ethics, animal ethics, and the environment. Lectures in the morning are followed by small-group mini-courses in the afternoons. Participants can choose from over 20 mini-courses.
Participants include graduate students and professionals along with a few select undergraduates. Participants receive mentoring from experts in the field and have ample opportunity to tailor the program to meet their career & research goals.
A small percentage of top participants will be invited to participate in “Fast Track” which provides weekly 1:1 tutoring to help participants complete a paper - to be submitted to a journal by the end of the program.
