Information Session: Programs in Bioethics


Apr 30, 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 Dr. Robert Klitzman and faculty will define bioethics and describe the program's experience and learning outcomes. Dr. Klitzman will highlight the new option to complete the program through a combination of online coursework and multi-day intensive study in San Francisco.
