Master of Bioethics

Over the past two decades, there has been increasing community concern about ethics in science, especially in the health sciences and the biological sciences.

The Master of Bioethics is a response to that concern, and will enable those taking it to deepen their understanding of ethical issues in health care and the biological sciences.

While the course is particularly well-suited to health care professionals and scientists who face complex ethical issues in their working lives, it will also be valuable for those involved in the formulation of public policy and law regarding these issues, as well as for anyone who simply wishes to explore issues of public concern in greater depth.

The course provides an interdisciplinary education that covers questions of life and death, ethical issues in patient care, legal issues in bioethics, and ethical issues in professional life.

Master of Bioethics students who have completed at least one semester of the course are eligible to apply for an annual fellowship of $9000 to work during the Australian summer as an intern in the Department of Ethics, Equity, Trade and Human Rights at the World Health Organisation in Geneva.
