The BA Biomedical & Health Care Ethics programme provides an opportunity for students of medicine or associated disciplines to spend a year studying biomedical ethics.
The BA is open to students from any UK institution which allows an intercalated year as part of a programme of undergraduate study.
This course explores the ethical issues surrounding clinical practice and technological advances in medicine. You will learn about the ethical issues that arise across all areas of health care practice, and have the opportunity to specialise in areas of particular interest.
The course covers key ethical concepts, which will feature prominently in your life as a medical professional:
- Doctor and patient rights
- The nature of value
Full details of the programme can be found in Course Finder.
The BA Biomedical & Health Care Ethics is taught alongside the MA Biomedical & Health Care Ethics (campus), which is also available as an intercalated degree.
