Information Session: Programs in Bioethics


Mar 26, 2018 - 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.


Event will be held online

Columbia University’s Programs in Bioethics, which include a Master of Science degree available on-campus or online, an online Certification of Professional Achievement, and individual online noncredit 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 Columbia’s Department of Psychiatry. Through on-campus elective coursework, students may study with faculty from 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, Academic Director Robert Klitzman, along with program faculty, will define bioethics and illustrate the field with examples, introduce the new online master’s program option, discuss the range of courses available, and describe the application process and program experience.
