Each summer, a diverse cohort of doctors, nurses, dentists, policy-makers, hospital chaplains, lawyers, IRB panelists, and others come together at Georgetown to grapple with some of the most profound moral issues they confront in their work, guided by internationally-renowned bioethics scholars from the KIE and beyond.
The course revolves around plenary lectures on key principles of bioethics, followed by small group discussions led by an expert facilitator. Two half-days are devoted to lectures on ‘special topics’ such as neuroethics, environmental ethics, and organizational ethics. The course is bookended by a half-day practical session on clinical ethics and a day-long design workshop on research ethics.
The KIE is proud to offer a limited number of need-based scholarships to international participants from developing countries, as well as a special discounted rate for students. Learn more about this year’s lineup and special workshops, and register, online!
