Information Session: Programs in Bioethics


Feb 22, 2016 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.


Event will be held online

Columbia University’s Programs in Bioethics, which include a Master of Science degree, an online Certification of Professional Achievement, and individual online courses, ground students in historical, philosophical, legal, and social-scientific approaches and models to address bioethical challenges. Students study with faculty from across the University, drawing on the extraordinary resources of the College of Physicians and Surgeons, the Mailman School of Public Health, and the schools of Law, Journalism, Nursing, International and Public Affairs, and Arts and Sciences. Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit is available for any program option.

During this information session, program director Robert Klitzman will define bioethics and illustrate the field with examples, while discussing the range of courses available to students and describing the application process.
