This course will provide an overview of selected ethics-related topics in health science education and strategies to integrate critical thinking and structured dialogue about moral dilemmas into educational contexts. It focuses on ethical aspects of the process of conducting biomedical research, and health-related ethical issues that may affect health care providers and the general public.
Join other professionals in secondary science education, health research ethics education, and other health and science-related positions in fostering dialogue and cultivating a professional community.
Thanks to grant support, the student cost for this course has been reduced to $42.
Instructor: Jeanne Ting Chowning
Dates: January 16 – March 27, 2013

Continuing Education Units, Clock Hours and Time Requirement
Participants can choose to earn either five continuing education units (CEUs) or up to 50 clock hours upon successful completion of course requirements. Participants will be evaluated on a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. We estimate that course work will require about two to three hours per week.
Instructional fees and student course support are covered by a NWABR grant “Collaborations to Understand Research and Ethics” (CURE), supported by a Science Education Partnership Award from the National Center for Research Resources and the Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives of the National Institutes of Health through Grant #R25OD011138.
