Summer Institute in Bioethics at Yale

The Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics at Yale University hosts an intensive Summer Institute in Bioethics for U.S. and international participants.

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.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis.  Just a few slots remain!
* Two Partial Scholarships Remain *

Tuition: $1,800 (undergraduates); $2,200 (graduate students); $3,200 (professionals)
Rates for this 2-month program are comparable to 1-week summer programs at similar institutions.

Course credit may be available, and housing is available within walking distance for an additional cost.

Program dates: June 1 - July 22, 2017
